The Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park is located at the top end of Tolosa Street – just past Tolosa Park – includes a range of trails including cross country, downhill, mountain cross, dirt jumps and northshore tracks. It was designed by world-renowned course designer Glen Jacobs and provides mountain bike riding opportunities for all skill levels, including extreme riders.
We are excited to commence the first stage of works in 2021 following the approval of the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Masterplan in late 2020. The first stage involves key upgrades to the flagship trail in Hobart – the North South Track, more specifically the ascent trail to five-ways intersection. It is hoped that these works will open the trail to new users by providing a more enjoyable climbing experience. As of July 2021 the works on the North South track were completed and open to the public.
Using the park
You can also access the track dataset in KML and other formats by visiting the Glenorchy City Council mapping website.
The park is a free public facility. Community groups or organisations wanting to host activities or events in the park should contact us to check that there are no event clashes or permit requirements.
The gates of the park are locked, but you can park your car there and push your bike through the space on either side of the gates. The park is only a few hundred metres past the gates.
The local mountain club hosts occasional local races at the park – you can find more details at the Hobart Wheelers and Dirt Devils website.
Major events are also hosted at the park, such as the Australian National Mountain Bike Series, where many of Australia’s top riders entertain spectators and judges alike.
Safety at the park
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.
