This trail allows access to the unique and previously underutilised landscape that lies between the Hornsby CBD and Berowra Valley Regional Park. It contains a mixture of parkland and bushland. The single track mountain bike trail is a combination of narrow handmade bushland trails and flowing one-metre-wide machine-made trails. This ‘flowtrail’ is a popular design which increases riders’ momentum and fun factor. The trail is close to town, which gives riders plenty of convenient places to buy food and bike supplies.

This great trail is located just a moment’s ride from the middle of Hornsby, making it easy for riders to get to by train if driving isn’t an option. The trail head is located on Quarry Rd, on the western side of Pacific Highway. If you’re driving, please follow the signs regarding vehicle parking – we don’t want to upset the residents!
