Mount Stromlo mountain bike trails are located, in the Weston Creek area at the Stromlo Forest Park. Mount Stromlo has some of the best mountain bike trails in Canberra. There are trails all over the mountain, meaning lots of variety and lots of fun.
There are loads of options. One of the most popular runs would have to be up blue gums through to ABC switchbacks all the way to the top of western wedgetail and then down skyline following the trails back to the trailhead. The climb up to the top takes approximately 30 minutes depending on fitness level, and the run back down will take about 10-15 again depending on fitness level. Be sure to take lots of photos up top. The views of the Brindabellas is just incredible.
One of my favourite trails to ride out there right now is pork barrel and double dissolution. They’re fast and technical and get the blood pumping.
All the trails are posted making it super easy to navigate and all suggested loops are mapped out and shown down at the trailhead to make things easy.
However, there are trails for all levels out at Stromlo. Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced rider there are loads of trails to ride.
Whether you’re a local or traveling from interstate it’s always worth checking out the Stromlo Forrest Park website in case of races or even for information regarding trails repairs after heavy storms.
