Whop-a-chang!!! It's the sound your bike makes as you're pinged off the myriad of rim-eating embedded rocks that dominate this trail's surface.

While the gradient is generally lower than the other Bells trails, don't expect to relax! You want to be on it to pick your way through the rock gardens, fold yourself into blind corners, nimbly dodge the trail-hogging grass trees, send (or dodge) primitive gap jumps and slap rustic catch-berms.

Whoppa can be ridden on any type of bike if you take it easy but bring your Enduro plough and a spare tyre if you're gonna attempt a sub-5min!

There are a number of blind gap jumps that can be easily avoided if necessary and the final descent to the river is the steepest part of the trail. This can be dodged (recommended for XC bikes) by following the B-line back to the park boundary (west). You will see this less-utilised track winding off to your right just from the top of the chute.

Whop-a-chang rewards those who've committed it to memory and it's not unheard of for riders to spend their whole Bells-ride doing Whoppa repeats.

Access Info

Ride to the highest point of Mt Mambup then cross the grass to the slab of rock that marks the common trail head for Rapids Ahoy, Savage Bliss, Train Spotting and Whop-a-Chang. An old fence has been flattened by animals here.
