The Montgomery Loop is the first official MTB trail in the Dial Range. At about 6km in length with easy grading, this trail is an awesome introduction to the Dial Range and can be ridden in combination with the trails of the Penguin MTB park.
This trail consists of a well graded climb with three very different styled descents with flavours of flow, natural and park, enough to put a smile on your dial (pun intended)

Access Info

This trail can be accessed by either the Montgomery car park on Montgomery road or from the Penguin MTB park via the Stalking Rooster trail.
