Twin Bridges is part old Aboriginal walking trail/part old logging road. It's a truly great jungle ride with some fast water bar downs. The track takes weeks of clearing by the DIRT Club after every wet season to make it rideable again (usually ready by July). Some old log bridges remain, plenty of rainforest creeks and ever present wait a while vine to watch out for. Common to spot cassowaries, pigs, dingoes, kingfishers and black snakes. Twin Bridges Tussle race is held here in August most years and in September 2017 the track formed part of the Crocodile Trophy stage race. The track can be done as a 32km circuit using Black Mountain Road.
