The Maydena Bike Park Development Team are pleased to announce the release of the park’s web site, social media channels, and concept plans.

The Maydena Bike Park will be a full time, year-round gravity bike park, located in stunning wilderness in Tasmania’s Derwent Valley, a 1:15 hour drive from Hobart.

We didn’t think it could get any more attractive to get down to Tasmania for a riding trip, but we’re happy to be proved wrong by this announcement!

With Tasmania already having a bevy of top quality riding locations, we're starting to get pretty jealous of the Apple Islanders!

The Maydena Bike Park is being developed by renowned trail building company, Dirt Art. The Park utilises the currently disused ‘Eagles Eyrie’ building, a multi-million dollar visitor centre located over 800 vertical metres above the township of Maydena.

The disused 'Eagles Eyrie' building will be repurposed by the Maydena Bike Park.

A network of over 60km of gravity-focused (all mountain/enduro and downhill) trails will connect the summit with the park’s base building in the town centre, offering over 800m of vertical descending across a range of trails for all abilities.

Recent work from Dirt Art includes the insanely good Hero Trail at Bright in Victoria, and the plan for Maydena is to have each of their trail teams from all around the country make at least one trail each.

It doesn't get much better than the Hero trail at Bright, seriously.

As each Dirt Art Team Leader and their team has a unique style of trail building, the variety of riding on offer is sure to offer something for every type of rider.

There'll be jumps and berms at Maydena, but there'll also be tech lines and natural trails- sounds good to us!
