Split Rock is one of the easier trails on Mount Borah. It is predominately a downhill gradient single track that was created by following the original kangaroo/wallaby tracks. On several sections there are areas were line selection is abundant, so you can try different approaches to get the best outcome for the riding and skill level. The last 750m of the trail follows and crosses a natural creek so the terrain is a little XC orientated. If you are lucky there will be water and you might meet some of the locals (Kangaroos/Wallabies.

There NO real surprises on the track that will catch you out. Most of the trail is in the shadow of the native trees, which makes it very nice during the warmer months.

You can be shuttled to the trail head or if you feel the love for pain you can ride the up lift road for ~1km (20min).

At this stage we are still working on the trail and will be looking at adding another 150-200m to the top (Trail Head)

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.
