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.

      trail is damp at the moment not “wet” a few puddles along the way where draining is an issue, pleasant to ride as always!

      Good for anyone. Some tricky sessions but easily cleared. Was a fun couple of hours out and back the the Shell about 12ks. Was fun.

      reporter Nice and tacky after a few showers - no mud or puddles and will dry out quickly. Riding really well.

       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!
