The Whirinaki Forest Mountain Bike Track is purpose built and weaves through one of the most spectacular
and interesting forests in the world, providing the quintessential Whirinaki riding experience.
The track is designed for the recreational mountain biker and requires a low/medium fitness and skill level
(grade 2). The track is 16 km and shorter sections of the track can also be ridden. It is the perfect introduction
to biking in the Whirinaki.
