Duration

Time (hrs)
3-5 hours

Location

This ride follows a 4WD track over the back of the Saw Back Range to the old mining town of Adamsfield and then back out again along Clear View Road.

It combines some fun, technical riding (and yes, a bit of pushing) as you climb up and descend along saw back track to Adamsfield, then you can enjoy a bit of fossicking before a much easier return route via Clear Hill Road.

Derby
The Atlas trail sits out from the rest of the Blue Derby trails and deserves trail notes all of its own.  Billed as a white-knuckle roller coaster ride, it is one heck of a track and worth the effort of riding it (just don't think that it's all downhill).  You can ride Atlas as part of a loop, organise a commercial shuttle through Vertigo MTB (I've done this option and highly recommend it) or organise your own shuttle.  These trail notes are written to help you with all these options.

Starting at the end of Belbins Road there is a growing network of tracks and trails all over the Meehan Ranges which make a great playground for beginner through to advanced riders.   Whilst most people now head straight up into the Meehan Ranges, there's still some great riding to be had in Stringy Bark gully itself directly off Belbins Road, especially for those who just want an hour or so on the bike.  Also check out the Meehan Ranges and Clarence Mountain Bike Park notes for other rides in the area.

Weldborough

The Big Chook is one of the trails making up the Weldborough section of the Blue Derby Network.  It follows the old Blue Tier Descent route up from Weldborough for the first 3kms and then turns off and what follows is one of the most awesome sections of trail in Tasmania.

The Blue Derby trails currently consist of 40+ kms of custom built single track with the trailhead smack bang in the middle of Derby. The riding is exquisite, and the scenery is better. Made up of a network of fourteen (at last count) named trails, these trails take you through beautiful forests and up and down amazing switchbacks and sweeping berms. The bulk of the trails can actually be done in a single large loop, but one loop might not be enough. With lots more trails on the way, these trails are a must do on the itinerary of anyone coming to Tasmania to ride.

A hidden gem of a ride connecting Clark Dam at the southern end of Lake King William with Derwent Bridge, this route follows infrequently used 4WD trails alongside the banks of the lake.  Combining remote riding along beautiful trails with spectacular bushland and lakeside views, this is a trail to check out before everyone else finds out about it.  It is not however for those looking for sweet single trail.

The Clarence Mountain bike park is less than 10 minutes by car out of Hobart and has largely become part of the greater Meehan Ranges trail network.  It is however still a worthy place to come and ride by itself with the 7km cross country trail providing a superb challenge for fit-intermediate riders and above.  For the rest of us mere mortals this park contains switchbacks that are sharp, steep and fairly unforgiving.  If you're not sure of your skills I'd recommend the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park over Clarence, but if you're up for the challenge … well here it is.

This route follows a coastal trail (Climies Track) from Granville Harbour to Trial Harbour, but don't let that lull you into thinking this is an easy ride.  Out and back you'll be climbing nearly 1000metres with pinches as steep as 15%.  That said, this trail is a mountain biking mix-up nirvana for the fit and adventurous as you tackle sandy trails, flowing granite, rocky patches, mud and creeks, and of course the hills ... so many hills.

A regular training ride for many Hobart based cyclists, this route (usually done in a clockwise direction) has plenty of climbing and is a good challenge.  Probably a route for training only.

Location

This route follows a circuit around the 4WD trails and firebreaks of Coningham Reserve. The riding is a bit of fun, but this ride is more for the locals looking for a short spin, or those just looking for somewhere new to go, this route is great when the wildflowers are out, but at anytime of year it provides some lovely views towards Mt Wellington and over the Derwent River.
