This route follows a coastal trail (Climies Track) from Granville Harbour to Trial Harbour, but don't let that lull you into thinking this is an easy ride. Out and back you'll be climbing nearly 1000metres with pinches as steep as 15%. That said, this trail is a mountain biking mix-up nirvana for the fit and adventurous as you tackle sandy trails, flowing granite, rocky patches, mud and creeks, and of course the hills ... so many hills.

Access Info

If heading in from the northern end, then head out north west from Zeehan along the Heemskirk Road towards Granville Harbour. About 26km from Zeehan turn left onto the Granville Harbour Road, and carry on for 5kms until you come to a T junction, turn left (don't continue into Granville Harbour) and carry on for about2kms along this track (no problems for 2WDs). You will cross a river (Tasman River) on a bridge with a few shacks around you. Park just past the shacks in one of the little pullouts and get ready to ride.

If heading in from the southern end, head out towards Zeehan the same way as above, but about a kilometre out of town, swing left onto the Trial Harbour Road. 15.5kms from the road junction, look for a track to your right. If you miss it, don't stress continue on to Trial Harbour, reset the odo and go back about 2.3kms. There's 2 entrances into the route from this end about 350 metres apart.

       Sooo many rocks to pedal over. Hard work. But fun... especially going north (Trial to Granville).

       This track is exhausting. Many steep, eroded and slippery climbs and descents. Extremely rewarding, but not for the faint-hearted. Definitely go from Trial to Granville
