A mountain bike network provides trails for cross country, all mountain, downhill and four cross riders.
Over 40kms of multi-use trails and approximately 25km of International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) standard single-track ranging from basic Green Trails through to Double-Black Diamond Level Trail are available for recreational riders and events.
The network has been designed to event standard, with some steep grades. A range of trails are available, targeting the different skill sets of beginners through to very experienced mountain bike riders. A variety of technical trail features have been incorporated, as have sustainable design techniques.
Recreational riders are able to access all trails except the Double Black Diamond. These trails are for the highly experienced riders only and will only be open during events. There is no shuttle service to take downhill mountain bike riders to the top of the trail network. A shuttle service may be implemented during organised events.
Please note that some of the trails at Mt Joyce recreation Park are multi-use trails, which can be used by walkers, trail runners and horse riders, as well as mountain bike riders. When on a multi-use trail, follow the give-way code:
- Walkers give way to horse riders.
- Mountain bike riders give way to walkers, horse riders and trail runners.
- Trail runners give way to walkers and horse riders.
- Horse riders be aware of other users.
Mountain biking is a potentially dangerous/hazardous activity. In the event of an emergency or accident involving bodily injury, telephone 000 or 112 immediately. Telephone reception can be unreliable with the park, so it may be necessary to travel to a high point to make an emergency telephone call, or if in a group, leave at least one person with the injured person and have others go for help. Emergency Services can access Mt Joyce Recreation Park when necessary. The park rangers are not responsible for the provision of first aid or emergency transport of injured patrons.
