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.

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.

This remote loop on the edge of the Tarkine takes you down nine kilometres of abandoned railway, dropping you out at the old Magnet township and mine.  Here you can explore to your heart's content, seeing first hand both the scars of our earlier presence in the area and how nature reclaims its own.  After exploring the old township, it's a gut busting climb up to the highway and back to the car leaving you with a feeling of having just undertaken your own little Tasmanian adventure.  The track notes also include a detour off to the Philosophers falls walk.

If you're heading over to the West Coast, then this would have to be the number one ride on your agenda.  The route follows an old railway line through some beautiful forests to the 114m Montezuma Falls.  The route can be broken into a number of sections from a short (11km) out and back ride along a gentle, easy to ride trail from the Northern end of the track though to a 55km out and back epic starting and ending in Zeehan.

The core of the ride is the 14km section (each way) from Melba Flats to Montezuma Falls where you'll get to play in the mud, race 4WD's, plunge through deep washouts and really get some serious mountain biking in.  Finally, for the well prepared and adventurous the final 8kms from Melba Flats to Zeehan crosses through button grass plains providing expansive views which you'll have plenty of time to enjoy as you push, bash and swim your bike along what was once a railway line.

The heart of the Sterling Valley Track is a short, hard to find section of technical single trail which descends from the flanks of Mt Murchison down into Rosebery, however if you start back near Tullah and tackle the climb up as well, then you'll be treated to a lovely one way ride.  The route comes alive once every two years when the Wildside event is run, but otherwise it's sitting there waiting for those brave enough to try it.  It's a track best enjoyed during the later summer months when it may have dried out a bit.

The Spray Tunnel - Oonah Hill mountain bike loop starts and finishes in Zeehan, and combines the fun of cycling up along an old railline through some gorgeous forest and the 100 metre spray tunnel, before linking onto the new Oonah Hill MTB Track, which after a bit more climbing through open plains leads to some fast descending back down into Zeehan.
