No matter what type of bike rider you are, we've got you covered #ForEveryRiderJoin Our Family

A brand new mountain bike network might be on the way for Lithgow, if their draft strategy is approved. 

Lithgow City Council has its sights on developing the network as a way to economic benefits of tourism within the region.

About Hassans Walls

The strategy puts the 780-hectare Hassans Walls Reserve as the centre location to develop a quality 9.5km mountain bike network suitable for all skill levels. The Reserve boasts the highest point within the Blue Mountains and would make some thrilling trails, if constructed and designed correctly.

Building a mountain bike network within this reserve should also take full advantage of the natural assets in the reserve by taking riders to the most scenic locations possible.

Proposed Trails 

To cater for all levels of riders, the strategy proposes a number of trails including: 

  • Green Climb Trail (shared) of 3,316m - offers an easy climb option to all trail users heading to the Hassans Walls Lookout.
  • Green Descent of 2,000m - Super Flow trail promises to be popular with riders of all skill levels.
  • Blue Descent of 1,600m - mixes aspects of old school technical with a twist of modern machine-built features
  • Black Descent (Pony Express).
  • Beginner Loop - loop trail is the most accessible in the network and will cater mainly to families.

Lithgow City Council is now inviting members of the community to have their say on the draft strategy.
