"Hidden Valley" at Coolah Gallery

N.B. The "Hidden Valley" trail is on private property & the current agreement with the landowner is that it will only be used on the "Hidden Valley Classic" race day. Unfortunately, the area is frequently used (without consent) by hunters with high powered rifles, crossbows, pig dogs etc. & at this point in time it is considered too dangerous for general trail ridng. Any unauthorised use by mountain bikers could jeopardise the current arrangement.

Can be done as a looped ride or shuttles. With about 13 single tracks winding their way off the escaprment the area is reasonably contained. Trails generally follow the ridge lines starting flattish with short sections of steeper more technical sections towards the bottom.

Kinross State Forest Gallery

Kinross State Forest is one of NSW mountain bikings best kept secrets. The mountain biking trails include over 20km's of purpose built singletrack through lush pine forest and over varied terrain.

The area offers a large percentage of singletrack suited to riders of all abilities, with a good combination of easy flowing smooth sections teamed with some more technical short and sharp hills, fast descents and some fun surprises thrown in along the way.

***Important update***

All the pine in the area is being logged. This means that traditions venue on the north side of the highway is no longer viable.

South side trails in the hardwood areas are still good and we are working on a new venue over near Rydal.

I'll post updated descriptions as it develops

Sweet loop through dense pine forest. CTMTB Club run XC races here and have done an outstanding job with track work. There's also miles more fire trail South of the highway if sniggle isn't your thing?

Mount Canobolas Area

This is a large area of forest with a lot of fire and management trails that are great to explore. It also has some big hills.

Rydal Gallery

Rydal is a tiny and unique village, listed as a heritage site, set in magnificent countryside. Rydal remains a quintessential rural village with its invigorating climate and fresh air.

A plethora of old 4x4 and moto trails exist through the bush land here and CTMBC are hoping to make this area their new home,
