Mountain Bike Tasmania - Mount Wellington North South Track Tour
One of the best mountain bike specific trails presently on offer in the country, The North-South Track, on Mt Wellington near Hobart, has been built to an extremely high standard, with the workmanship and attention to detail on the trail the only thing likely to distract riders on this awesome descent.
The ride begins with a pick up from Hobart hotels before we drive to The Springs part way up Mt Wellington. From here we unload the bikes and begin the first of a number of trips down the trail for the day. The ride starts straight up with plenty of great flowing single track as we traverse through the wet Eucalypt forest on stage one of the trail, which takes us through to Junction Cabin.
From the cabin, a faster downhill section begins where the grin on your face will match the quality of the track, absolutely huge! We wind our way down through the open eucalypt forest past well-constructed berms, an amazing rock bridge and more single track before we emerge at the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park we then ride back to town on the cycleway.
