Awsome jump park. Big doubles, medium doubles, small doubles, rhythm sections (lots of them), table tops, burms etc etc. Its just jumps. Great place to practise. Watch out for the walkers, as they have no idea what is going on there, and constantly walk in front of you when your running up. Also watch out for the scale up the tree......impressive. There are jumps here for beginers too.

Summary:
A new set of jumps has sprung up nearby. Created by the same bikers no doubt. Jumps are bigger and generally for kick ass mtb's, unlike myself.
Find the tennis courts ( a council BMX jumps is now also next to the tennis courts, for beginners & intermediates ).
Then just cross the river and you will find the jumps nearby in the bush.

Summary:
From reading the past reviews, the forest jumps here are perhaps a new addition to the area (not sure)as they are awesome! Start on the council made jumps behind the tennis courts and then graduate to the forest jumps over the footbridge. There are 4 sets of jumps, some new ones still under construction + word of a bowl about to be made? (possible garbage, but I don't think so) These are the best jumps I have seen this side of Melbourne and are still very much alive.

Recommended Route:
Melways Ref Map 31 K11:- Turn into The Boulevard off Burke Rd just after Burke rd goes over the Eastern Freeway. Take the first left and park your car down at the end of the 'Eaglemont Tennis Club' Car Park. Look to the right and get onto the gravel bike track and take the left path, go 200m and look left, you will see the first set of jumps behind the Tennis courts. Alternatively just walk along the side of the courts to get to the council jumps. To get to the second (unbelievable) set of jumps, continue down the same gravel bike path, turn right and go over the footbridge. At the end of the bridge, make a right and go for 50-100 meters. Look to the right, you will see some single track, take it and follow it around to the left and look. Close your mouth and dont let your jaw drag on the ground!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Studley park is in the area.

Summary:
Yeah it's been bulldozed alright. But there are more jumps just next to the tennis courts. I never got to ride the old trail but these ones have been council built and are pretty decent - better than Windsor that's for sure.

Recommended Route:
Park at the tennis courts then ride around the fenceline.
