Snake Bite is a technical downhill track approx. 3.5 km in length. There is a shuttle road to take you from the finish back to the trailhead.

The track is on private property so you must go to the Paragliding club house and sign a waiver before you ride. MTBA club membership or a day license are a must.

Access Info

From Manilla (approx 10mins to Mt Borah), drive through town and then head north over the Namoi River Bridge. Turn left 200m after bridge into Boggabri Rd (you will see a paraglider graphic left pointer sign) Don't drive straight ahead to Barraba and Upper Manilla as directed by most Car GPS Navi units.
Continue on for ~1km and just after Manilla River concrete bridge turn right into Wimbourne Rd (you will see a paraglider graphic right pointer sign). After 300m Wimbourne Rd has a T intersection where you continue to the right.
Continue on for ~11kms (its gravel after 6kms). There are two big creek dips as you travel. Just after the 2nd big dip (gully crossing) at 11kms turn right into Manilla Paragliding sign posted driveway.
NOTE: Mt Borah access road is 50m further along Wimbourne Rd on left.

Disclaimer

Private Property - Waiver Must be signed at the Homestead.

      Top section has just been weed sprayed. Will take 2-3 weeks to clear growth. All clear.

       Such a sick trail, well built, plenty of tech with speed, man made features as well as natural drops to keep you on your toes!

       Recent developments and trail work has seen this trail remain highly technical but still achievable with the inclusion of B-lines etc.
