One of the most popular mountain bike tracks in Australia, “The Oaks” Fire trail has all the elements of a great ride and experience. The trail runs between Woodford and Glenbrook. This ride comes with a 1000m vertical decent, all in the name of fun and good views.
The ride is downhill 80% of the way with a steep final kick as you climb the road out of the National Park to Glenbrook Village. While there is a some solid climbing in the first 11km of the ride, once the helipad is reached , it's one long fun downhill run. Good fitness required.
As the trail winds its way along ridge tops make sure you take the time to have a look around as some excellent views of the lower Blue Mountains can be had. On a clear day you can see all the way to Sydney CBD.
If it's been recently graded, the smooth wide trail allows for a sustained thrilling high speed blast. The icing on the cake is the fantastic optional single track section towards the end, which is one of the best in Sydney.
We meet you with your hire bike at the lower commuter parking station at Woodford train station.
The trail is 28kms long and takes on average 2.5 to 3.5 hours to complete. The track is easily self guided and suitable for average fitness and experience.
At the end of your ride, depending on the logistics of our day, we generally meet you back at Woodford or occasionally Glenbrook (logistics dependant). We will let you know this the night before.
