Finding the Trail Head

Flow Nation

From the centre of town, ride south on Wellington Street, onto Westbury Road and onto Oakden Road. The boom gate on Oakden Road leading to the reserve is locked at 5pm, so don’t get your vehicle stuck on the inside. There is plenty of parking outside the gate. The main trail head is on the southern side of the Silverdome (Launceston’s indoor track cycling venue) at the top of the hill, near the phone towers.

From the boom gate/overpass, follow the sealed road left, down then up the hill to the far end of a gravel car park where there is an information sign and trail map. Please follow signs regarding track closures.
