  • Getting There

    Access to the Ourimbah trails is off Red Hill Forest Rd, which is located about a 10-minute drive west from the F3 Wyong exit. Take care, as the entrance in Red Hill Forest Rd comes directly after a rise in the road and it's an easy one to miss.

    The cross-country trails are best accessed from the carpark around 500m up the main fire road  - please don't park at the lower carpark as it tends to annoy local residents. From the car, the trail is obvious, heading up the hill first. You'll struggle to get lost, even though the trails aren't signposted, as the track is so well ridden. A loop can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.

    To access the downhill shuttle, keep driving up the hill till you hit a fork - take the left option along Scaddens Ridge Rd. After a couple more kilometres you'll see a tall tower on your left, with another little side road leading up to it - that is the top of the track.

    At the bottom of the trail, it's about a five minute pedal out from the trail exit along a flattish fire road back to the main lower carpark area.
