The first legal freeride trail in Sydney Crackers is a Downhill track full of jumps, berms, drops and chutes, which winds its way down to the creek and finishes out at the weir. Lovingly crafted by locals many years ago, it recieved a huge upgrade by Dirt Art before being formally legalised in late 2019.

For first timers, make sure you walk or slowly ride the trail before sending jumps and drops, as conditions may vary. Do not ride in the wet, and make sure not to cut new trails in or damage the existing trail.

Access Info

Park in the upper Warrimoo Oval Carpark and duck straight into the bush.

       WArrimoo DH is definitely over. Blocked and a walk not a ride. Closed due to very sensitive area for flora and fauna but the good news is Crackers is getting a revamp and will be open in 2020. It’s going to cater to all types of riders and official so there for the long haul. Yew!

       I rode the new enduro trail in Jan 2020. I love the trail which is relatively fast, smooth and has a great diversity of features, jumps, gap jumps, rocky shutes and rollers as well as great berms. I'll need to comeback for the gap jumps, they need some practice. I only did one of the smaller jumps. The first jump is a gap of about 4-5m so needs a lot of speed and commitment.
      Note that the trail continues when you reach the "climb" sign (marker no 10, at 2.47min in the vid) just after the last set of gap jumps. The trail goes towards the creek and main firetrail. There is no real up trail from there. I followed the old DH trail back up until joining the new, sign posted, up trail. To pickup the old DH trail, follow the fire trail to the left, after about 50-100m you see an overgrown trail at your left going up the hill.

      PS. I rode the trail in damp conditions and noted the berms were soft as a result and the rocks very slippery especially the rocks in the lower section past marker #12 (at 3.17min in the vid) were there is more vegetation along the trail.

       As local, this is a great trail to work on your skills; however, to those that are modifying it and putting in small jumps (eg after the jump between the two trees before the big gap, or the small jump after the entry burm)...what is the point? Suggest that the trail is great as is - leave it be.
