A great trail for all skill levels, winding it's way around the lake to Hatchery Bay. Passes through cattle grazing paddocks, so keep an eye out for the odd cow, and make sure you close the gates

Intermediate and advanced riders should look for the more technical a-lines that branch off from the main trail.

Access Info

The trail head closest to the township of Jindabyne starts at the boat ramp, however you can ride from town along the Jindabyne Community Trail (concrete path), through the caravan park to the trail head.

      Excellent XC trail put together by the local MTB club by my understanding, good mix of terrain, fast flowing in sections. Excellent scenery and location through cattle grazing paddocks and lake Jindabyne is never far from view. Great trail for beginners to experts. An excellent example of doing a trail right, glad I took the time to ride it and would be great if there were more purpose built public trail like this around the country!

      Agree with this comment. Really enjoyable, fast. Took my young boys with me and it was so much fun! Not technically challenging at all but a great trail.
