Hollybank Mountain Bike Park
Hollybank is already used by the Launceston Mountain Bike Club for both mountain bike and cyclocross races, but the area has lots of untapped potential which is why it is exciting to hear that funding of $800,000 has just been announced to fund the first stage of a Hollybank Mountain Bike Park.
According to the 2009 Tasmanian Mountain Bike Plan, A Mountain Bike Trail Network Plan for the Hollybank State Forest area was prepared in 2005 as a partnership between Sport and Recreation Tasmania and Forestry Tasmania. In 2006, Joey Klein, IMBA Trail Specialist ground truthed this plan on behalf of Forestry Tasmania.
There are approximately 27km of trails mapped out and around 8kms of ‘shovel ready’ trails with existing approvals in place.
The Funding for the Park is part of the State Governments "Tasmanian Jobs Package".
