Arch Hill Mountain Bike Trails




Opened in 2010, these are the closest trails to the CBD (5km riding distance). With over 3km of well maintained trails ranging in grade from “Training Wheels” for beginners,  to the challenging “Steep Street” for those who want to test their fitness, to Super Highway for those who prefer gravity to get them moving- there is something for everyone.

The Arch Hill MTB Team is responsible for building and maintaining the trails, promoting their use and putting on cool events that anyone can be part of. All the work is done by volunteers and we would love for you to join us on a working bee or see you at our events!

Keep up to date with regular group rides, events and working bees on our Facebook Page;

Working Bees:

We run regular working bees to keep the trails in top condition as well as planting and rubbish removal days to help get Arch Hill to live up to its “Scenic Reserve” designation. If you would like to help out, follow our facebook page for working bee dates, or send us an email to get on the mailing list.
