Boderline is a replacement for trails affected by the logging of Pines in Belmont Regional Park. It is a mix of flowing trail, drops, jumps and banked turns. Lots of sustained steep sections. There are a few deviations towards the bottom of the bottom of the trail that cater for different abilities and those who like to jump.

Access Info

Access is off Old Coach road. If you can get dropped at the top of Normandale road where it meets Old Coach road that is best. The finish is as the end of Stratton Street near the old woolshed.

If you can't be dropped off, or prefer to ride up, then there are 2 ways. Either ride on the metalled farm track up to Old Coach Road (it's pretty steep and shingly), or take the sealed road back up Stratton street, take a left onto Cottle Park drive, left onto Normadale Road and a left where Normandale road and Sweetacre Drive meet, until you come to Old Coach Road - then keep riding until you find the start of Borderline.

Update Jan 2016. Best way up is now the 4 Degrees track.

Running great. A few rocks are getting exposed so if you have ridden for a while take it a little easier.
