      One of Australia's most popular and ridden trails, Manly Dam and Bantry Bay are a suburban escape with a wide variety of trail - with plenty of access trails, singletrack, technical descents and challenging climbs. Be sure to check out the views on Trig Track, smash rocks on Ghania and try and find the flow on 19th Hole.

      Remember to be always on the lookout for hikers, dog walkers and local residents - with such close vicinity to suburbia, many trails are multi-use and to be ridden with awareness.
