Oaks Fire Trail MTB

  • Woodford Station 19 Railway Parade Woodford, NSW, 2778 Australia (map)

Classic mountain bike track from Woodford to Glenbrook in the Blue Mountains.

Join a 28 kilometre cycle between Woodford and Glenbrook in Blue Mountains National Park on gated fire trail with sections of singletrack. There’s a great technical section with options to bypass the difficult obstacles and then a steep climb on paved road to complete the ride at Glenbrook. This event will suit people with good fitness, intermediate riding skills and a well maintained mountain bike who have ridden a similar distance recently. Bring lunch supplies, plenty of fresh water and snacks.

Travel to meet the group at Woodford Station ready to depart on cycles at 10:00am sharp. The train leaving Central at 8:24am stops at Glenbrook at 9:27am and continues on to Woodford arriving at 9:58am.
