The Risdon Brook Dam Reserve is a pleasant little reserve on the outskirts of Hobart and cyclists are allowed to ride the easy 4.4km track which circles the dam. This ride will suit those looking for a nice family ride for the kids or a short easy relaxing ride for themselves.
Those searching for mountain bike trails will be better served heading for nearby trails up the nearby East Risdon Hills or Meehan Ranges

Access Info

Risdon Brook Dam is approximately 12kms (15 minutes drive) from the centre of Hobart. You can get there by heading across the Tasman Bridge, but making sure that as you come off the bridge you are in the left hand lane heading towards Lindisfarne. After leaving the bridge heading left (upriver) continue on the B32 (East Derwent Highway) for 6.6km until you hit a big roundabout. Take the second exit at this roundabout heading up Grass Tree Hill to Richmond, and then almost immediately turn left into the Reserve (signed). It's a further 700 metres to the car park.
