This remote abandoned track on the edge of the Tarkine takes you down nine kilometres of abandoned railway, dropping you out at the old Magnet township and mine. Here you can explore to your heart's content, seeing first hand both the scars of our earlier presence in the area and how nature reclaims its own.

Access Info

This ride starts at the Waratah waste transfer station.

Assuming you come into Waratah from the A10 (so from any of Burnie, Queenstown or Cradle Mountain), then as you enter the town look for the sign to Savage River / Corinna (near the corner store). Turn left onto this road (B23 - Waratah Road) and just follow it 2.3kms until you see the Waste Transfer Station on your right. If coming into Waratah from the Savage River direction, then just keep an eye out for the waste transfer station on your left.

There's plenty of space on the side of the road to park outside the waste transfer station, or you could always just leave your car in Waratah and cycle out to this point.

There is no mountain biking signage at the trailhead of this ride (or on the route itself). You have to get around it by yourself.
