Bump Track Details
This 6km track was originally an Aboriginal trail between the coastal and mountain regions, and in the early days of settlement was a crucial link between Port Douglas and the hinterland for settlers and miners.
The ascent for the Bump Track starts with a 2km challenging incline, including one nasty steep climb called Slatey Pinch at the halfway point. After this, it is 4km of rolling hilly bumps, including a steep drop into Robin's Creek,a picturesque mountain stream approximately 2km from the top of the track. The descent from The Bump is generally in good condition but the steepness combined with speed and a number of waterbars means that the Bump probably causes more injuries than any other track in the area.
There are very few technical obstacles. The drop into Robin's Creek can be very slippery and steep to exit and requires all riders to walk their bike out. The metal walkway out of the creek can be lethal with wet bike shoes. The Bump Track ends at Connolly Road in the Mowbray Valley. From Connolly Road there is a marked "RRR" track back to Port Douglas, with a beach ride along the iconic Four Mile Beach to finish.
The Bump Track climb starts on Connolly Road (off Mowbray River Road) an easy ride from Port Douglas. The Bump Track descent starts on Black Mountain Road, Julatten.

|Watch Out for waiterwiles They are small rope like plants hanging from trees. They will rip you off your bike and do some decent slicing to you!|

|Track has dried out and a bobcat has cleared fallen trees. Still a bit of wait a while sneaking onto the track. Descent is fast but a bit rough...|
