Legal DH tracks and Trails on MT Canobolas

Mt Canobolas, a 500m vertical mountain sitting south-west of Orange NSW. Orange, a city of 40,000 about 4 hours north-west of Sydney along the Mitchell Highway. 

Orange has always been the capital of cycling for the region, with a cycling festival each year, a variety of national XC races and lots of other XC events. But, what about the DH guys, what about the Enduro racers? 

Both XC and DH (and now their lovechild Enduro) mountain biking are great for people's fitness and help to get more people out into nature. I always hear of people in Orange complaining about the lack of things to do, having this infrastructure will help to get more people into nature and out on their bikes.

Mt Canobolas has some very special terrain, including amazing volcanic rock formations, gorgeous flora and fauna and commanding views of Orange and its surrounding areas. Long standing as a tourist destination as well as having the majority of the town's communication attached to the top means the mountain already has a myriad of roads and tracks criss crossing it allowing shuttling to be possible on the tracks.

With 500m plus of vertical, huge rock slabs, incredible dirt and a huge group of keen local riders who are ready to build the tracks, run the events and support the sport, what's not to love about Canobolas?

So come on, help us achieve what we have been dreaming about, support a new generation of Riders and Racers alike and bring something great to an already great region.

If you have any serious doubts about the possibility of building a bike park on such a mountain, take a look at examples like Stromlo in Canberra, Maydenya in Tasmania, Mystic in Bright and Thredbo in Koziosko National Park. All with thriving MTB scenes, holding DH and Enduro races and bringing in people from around the country and even the world.
