Ben Lomond Descent Tour

Ben Lomond MTB
This is the ride that we are most famous for, and justifiably so. The tour is mostly downhill (sorry, yes that was mostly!) so hold on and enjoy the ride. Our local guides will take you on one of the ultimate mountain bike descents possible in Tasmania with a total drop of 1050 vertical metres. Starting in the alpine ski village at 1450 metres, this awesome trip takes you down the spectacular Jacobs Ladder road before connecting to old four wheel drive tracks through the eucalypt forests. There is also a fantastic single-track section, part of the annual Ben Lomond Descent multi-sport race. We then continue on fire trails and other single tracks to our finishing point on the Blessington Road at 400 metres. All tours depart on demand. Tour duration is 6-7 hours (including transport from Launceston and return). Tour cost is AUD225 and includes transfer to/from Ben Lomond, lunch and snacks, bike and helmet.
