      Araluen mountain bike trails include more than 15km of dedicated mountain bike track. There is also a large network of fire trails in the West MacDonnell Ranges.

      The trails are unlike any other in Australia due to the arid rangeland terrain, ideal for mountain biking.

      The trails are managed by the Central Australian Rough Rider Mountain Bike Club, who are dedicated local mountain bike rider with a strong commitment to social, recreational riding, trail development and junior rider development.

      Regular social rides depart from the Alice Springs Scout Hall at the corner of Larapinta and Lovegrove Drives on Wednesday nights. Trails are suitable for a range of riders, with loops available for juniors and novice riders.

      Trail use is free for all Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) members and members are cover by the MTBA insurance policy while riding on the trail network. Non members are not covered, but can participate in social rides by purchasing a day license.

      For information, a map and times, contact the Tourism Central Australia or visit the facebook group, Alice Springs Mountain Bike Trails.
