This ride follows a 4WD track over the back of the Saw Back Range to the old mining town of Adamsfield and then back out again along Clear View Road.

It combines some fun, technical riding (and yes, a bit of pushing) as you climb up and descend along saw back track to Adamsfield, then you can enjoy a bit of fossicking before a much easier return route via Clear Hill Road.

The Blue Derby trails currently consist of 40+ kms of custom built single track with the trailhead smack bang in the middle of Derby. The riding is exquisite, and the scenery is better. Made up of a network of fourteen (at last count) named trails, these trails take you through beautiful forests and up and down amazing switchbacks and sweeping berms. The bulk of the trails can actually be done in a single large loop, but one loop might not be enough. With lots more trails on the way, these trails are a must do on the itinerary of anyone coming to Tasmania to ride.

Weldborough

One of the original mountain biking trails in the Blue Tier area (and now largely superceded by the new Blue Tier trail built as part of the Blue Derby network) you can ride the Blue Tier descent in several different ways, but at its heart the descent consists of 11km of old school technical trails connecting the deserted town of Poimena and Weldborough

The trail isn’t for the faint hearted, and inexperienced, but those who have a good level of riding skills will find some great technical riding amongst some beautiful forest and heathlands.

The Clarence Mountain Bike Skills Park is less than 10 minutes by car out of Hobart and serves as both the main entryway into the greater Meehan Ranges trail network and the place to go in Hobart for a bit of skills park riding with the addition of a pump track and skills park in 2018.

This route follows a coastal trail (Climies Track) from Granville Harbour to Trial Harbour, but don't let that lull you into thinking this is an easy ride.  Out and back you'll be climbing nearly 1000metres with pinches as steep as 15%.  That said, this trail is a mountain biking mix-up nirvana for the fit and adventurous as you tackle sandy trails, flowing granite, rocky patches, mud and creeks, and of course the hills ... so many hills.

Thanks to the efforts of the Cradle Coast Mountain Bike Club, many of the old forestry trails in the Dial Range have now been stitched together with some singletrack sections to provide a wonderful, but still infrequently ridden, world of climbing and descending.   The route described here follows the sections of the Cranky Penguin race that are open outside of the race event (also see the Penguin MTB Park) and while I'd recommend the race as a great time to ride these trails (and enjoy sections not open during the rest of the year), it can be really enjoyable to explore these trails and forests at a more leisurely pace as well.

With 20kms of dedicated mountain bike trails, plus a skills area featuring Australia's biggest pump track and a jump track, Hollybank, just 20 minutes outside of Launceston, offers a lot for mountain bikers in Tasmania.  

Hollybank offers a 4.5km easy 'green' trail which basically circles the reserve, and off this there is another 3.6km intermediate 'blue' grade circuit.  Finally, for those who are really here to ride, there's a 10km descent (the Juggernaut) with the option of the double-black diamond "Ginger Ridge" and "Reverb" tracks near the top.  

Juggernaut is unlike anything else we've got to ride in Tasmania at the moment, and for those who can put a shuffle together and who like rollers, jumps, drops, rocks and their downhill fun then they are going to find this track their own little bit of paradise. Note: LMBC have advised that the Juggernaut trail is closed from June 4 2018 to late winter/early spring due to logging in nearby coupes.  For updates see the LMBC facebook page.

The Meehan Ranges on the outskirts of Hobart contains a complex network of tracks and trails heading up over the Meehan Ranges which make a great playground for beginner through to advanced riders.  The best way to discover these trails is with someone who already knows them, or just download the GPX files and go exploring. The Hobart MTB Rides facebook group is a good group to find some riding buddies.

The North-South Track is some of Hobart's best riding, and if you're only able to ride one track on Mt Wellington, this would be a good option.

The epic way to do the North South track is to get a lift up to the Springs and then just enjoy the run down.  The route has a combination of twisting turns, great lines, good challenges and it's all backed up with a gorgeous riding backdrop. One minute you can be looking down over most of Hobart, the next you can feel a world away.

The route described here assumes you've got to ride up as well, so includes connecting sections to get you onto the track from the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park and a bit of a loop down Radfords Track, which is a fun descent.
