Andersons Gallery

Think of this as The Oaks big brother. Longer, steeper, rougher, tougher climb at the end, harder to get to. Up to the reader to decide if these things make for a better ride.

Blackheath Rocks

At a Glance

Blackheath Rocks Gallery

At 1,065m Blackheath is the highest village along the great western highway (Bell is the only village with in the BMCC area that is higher). There are several options for rides in the area, this description is for the two out and back firetrail rides named Hanging Rock and Anvil Rock - in the one place here as they are so close and similar.

A network of fire trails that spans from Blaxland to Yellow Rock. Great for a short rides. Best for linking the Lower Blue Mountains to create some epic rides.

Faulconbridge Point

At a Glance

Faulconbridge Point Gallery

A pretty gentle out and back (13.4km return from the gate), a good ride for beginners with a great view at the end.

Loads of fantastic fire trail in the wilderness. Nothing too technical and no particularly steep hills from what I know.

A variety of tracks with a mix of firetrail and technical single track. Currently a bit of a maze which allows for creating your own loop.

Also includes a legal DH Track.

Lake Woodford's surrounds have recently been opened to riders and walkers, meaning we can now access a bunch more firetrail in the mid mountains. Note: There is no legal access to the dam - no swimming!

Your Basic Fire Trail dropping 120m in elevation over 7kms with your pinch climbs here and there.

Mount Hay Gallery

You can only get so close but you want to get closer and touch it as the view is amazing. Unfortunately NO BIKES past the end of Mt Hay Rd. If you want to get closer, bring a chain and lock plus some walking shoes.

Overall A decent ride with not to many steep hills. Trail was relatively smooth and the views are amazing.

Mount York Gallery

Three distinct routes from the Mt York peninsular to Hartley Valley below - two single track and a third fire trail make for a few combinations with one thing in common - the 250 vertical metre drop. This is steep, and on occasion, very tricky stuff.

Narrow Neck

At a Glance

Narrow Neck Gallery

Might be easy for some, but the steepness and therefore both up and down are a task.

Six Foot Track

At a Glance

Six Foot Track Gallery

The Six Foot Track was originally constructed as a bridal way between Katoomba and Jenolan Caves. It is now possible to ride one section of the track, but not it's entirety. Please respect these rules, only ride where permitted and dismount where required. The most popular route appears to be the 28km (one way) section between Megalong Road and Jenolan Caves road.

St Helena

At a Glance

St Helena Gallery

A technical single trail that complements the Oaks in the Blue Mountains. This trail is either an out and back, about 8km each way. Or an out leg towards a cliff escarpment with an extremely technical descent that is hike-a-bike only (eg. you have to carry your bike down and out the other side), about 20km in total.

Some nice firetrails and beautify leafy fern lined double track. Add steep hills with tough climbing (and obvious downhill fun that must proceed it).
