Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park
The Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park includes a range of trails including cross country, downhill, mountain cross, dirt jumps and northshore tracks. Designed by world renowned course designer Glen Jacobs, the park provides mountain bike riding opportunities for all skill levels, including 'extreme' riders.
The park fits with the Council’s strategic and community aims of providing a range of sport and recreation opportunities for the community as well as helping to develop the city as an iconic tourism destination.
How To Use This Service
The park is a free public facility. Community groups or organisation who wish to host activities or events in the park are encouraged to contact Glenorchy City Council to check that there are no event clashes or permit requirements.
The park is located at the top end of Tolosa Street – just past Tolosa Park. There are tall red poles at the gate and a large sign. The gate remains locked for security reasons – however you are free to push your bike through the space provided on either side of the gates. Parking is provided at the gates and cars should not proceed beyond gates. The park is only a few hundred metres past the gate.
The local mountain club also hosts occasional local races at the park – check www.dirtdevilsmtb.com for details. Major events are also hosted at the park such as the Australian National Mountain Bike Series, where many of Australia’s top riders entertain.
A word of CAUTION many of the tracks contain 'extreme' drops, jumps and obstacles. Riders should always inspect the track before riding and ride within their limits. When using the park it is a requirement that you:
- Wear a helmet and other protective gear
- Ride within your ability
- Carefully check the area you are going to ride before you ride it
- Respect other users
- Ensure children are supervised at all times.
