      The Nambucca Valley Cycle Club’s super-loop at Jacks Ridge Trail is the newest addition to the ever-growing range of XC trails on the north coast. Located just west of Nambucca Heads, the local crew have worked hard to create a really sweet set of linked trails, combining the dual track of old forestry roads in the form of “The Roller-coaster” with purpose built, hand carved single track.

      For the most part the loop is not too technically demanding. The emphasis here has been on flow, and flow it does. The well-drained soil is fantastically tractable, encouraging big railing turns through the trees. Useful structures provide access across fallen logs and gullies but if you fancy getting a little trickier then the lads have got the biggest log roll on the coast. There are B lines around all obstacles if you want but the A lines aren't over the top and definitely XC orientated rather than full on freeride features.
      Primary Trail Type: Cross-Country

      Access Info:
      Take the Old Coast Road off the Pacific Highway. Jacks Ridge Road is about 1/2 way along on the eastern side. The trailhead and carpark are about 500m along the road. About 10min from Macksville to the south and a similar time from Nambucca to the east.

      Note some GPS system will try to route from the Pacific Highway onto Jacks Ridge Road but end is not open to vehicles.
