Enjoyable mountain bike ride along the most popular trail in the Blue Mountains. The ride is predominantly downhill but has some tricky climbs and a few more than tricky descents. Riders will need some previous MTB experience, however suitable for almost everyone. First roll along some open trails, see some Aboriginal rock engravings, a meander along a ridge looking into a spectacular valley. Then comes a gnarly downhill, and a gentle roll up to the helicopter landing pad. A quick stop and a play with the logs, then the beautiful 5km descent. The fun really begins after this, along a section of fast and flowing singletrack, including some technical challenges for those with higher abilities. Of course the ride ends with a nasty climb back to Glenbrook station, where we retire to the bakery for lunch. Bring plenty of water and snacks, and a sturdy mountain bike is required.

Notes: 'Will only proceed if dry weather and dry-ish trail.Start ASAP after arrival of train leaving Central 9:44.Please read Ride Description carefully.
