Fox Creek has been around since well before the millennium, boasting 48km of trails. It was the place for riders around Adelaide for nearly 30-years, but unfortunately, the network was totally destroyed in the 2019 bush fires.
Post bushfire rebuild
Starting with a clean slate, Fox Creek is rebuilding bigger and better than before. The rebuild is happening as we speak, with about 50km of trails complete and another 40km or so on the way.
Fox Creek is where riders like Connor Fearon, Shelly Flood and Troy Brosnan cut their teeth, and the new network has a good mix of green, blue and black trails — including a few DH runs.
Fox was initially built largely by the community, and the second time around, the network is properly mapped out, designed to offer something for every rider — including adaptive mountain bikers, gravel riders, groms and bike packers.
High up in Adelaide’s Mount Lofty Range, the trails are on Forestry SA land. The site has about 270m of vertical on offer, and with a new arrangement, shuttles can use forestry roads for faster laps and more gravity trails.
The rebuild will also have running water, toilets, shower and bike wash facilities, high-speed eBike charging, BBQs and more.
A little under an hour outside of Adelaide, on the commute, you’ll pass seven wineries along the way; beyond that, Fox Creek stands largely on its own — so your best bet will be to stay in Adelaide.
