This purpose built shared-use track in Wellington Park linking The Springs with the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park is an interesting and appealing track for both mountain bike riders and walkers.
The track was completed in December 2011 and the methods used in its construction are both functional and artistic. These include dry-stone walls, log rides, jumps and the impressive clapper bridge which crosses the New Town Rivulet.
The track is suitable for mountain bike riders of moderate ability (with some more challenging features located on side loops) and there are good sight lines enabling riders and walkers to easily see each other. For those wishing to encounter fewer bikes, choose a week-day rather than a weekend.
