Kate Reed Reserve
MTB

Key Statistics

Distance
11km (Variable)
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
30mins - 2hours

There is a dense network of trails criss-crossing the Kate Reed Reserve and it really is best enjoyed by pointing your wheel down the main trailhead and just exploring.  For those looking to push themselves there are some dedicated tracks available and families with kids could equally enjoy riding down to the duck boarded area and just exploring.   Basically get in there and enjoy yourself.  This park has something for all levels.

Distance
55km (shorter options possible)

Time (hrs)
4-6 hours

Location

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.

Maria Island Featured Hot
MTB

Key Statistics

Distance
Day 1 - 40km, Day 2 - 15km
Duration
Multi-Day (Tour)

Location

Maria Island makes for a great overnight cycling trip, allowing you a chance to not only explore the more commonly visited sites on the Northern Island, but also a chance to head down to the much less visited Southern Island.

The route described below sets aside the first day for a leisurely exploration of the Southern end of the Island on the first day, overnight camping at Encampment Cove, and then a walk up Mt Maria and exploration of the more visited Northern end of the Island on the second day.  However, once on the Island, you can mix and match the rides to your own liking and unless you're really keen to get away from it all, it might make more sense to base yourself at Darlington and just do day trips (see route options).

Maria Island has an amazing abundance of wildlife, so it can be worth taking a good torch for a bit of a night time look around.

Location

This MTB park was built by the Cradle Coast Mountain Bike Club who have the lease over the site.    There's only a few kilometres of singletrail in the park, but it's the man made features that will draw you here and make you want to stay.  There is also a new skills park above the race track and some impressive jumps are being installed inside the old speedway.  While there is something for the beginner through to advanced rider, you'll really get the most out of this this park if you fall more in the intermediate to advanced end of the range.

Snug Tiers (Grey Mountain and Pelverata Falls)
MTB

Key Statistics

Distance
25kms
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
2-4 hours

Location

This ride ties together a couple of out and back rides to Grey Mountain and Pelverata Falls into a loop of sorts.   It is probably more for adventurous local riders who don't mind some rough tracks and who are looking for a short bit of technical riding with some nice views at the end. 
However it can also make a great day out for less experienced riders just so long as you are willing to walk your bike a bit.  There are plenty of options to extend or shorten this ride for those looking for more or less hours in the saddle.

Risdon Brook Dam

Key Statistics

Distance
4.4km
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
< 1 hour

Location

The Risdon Brook Dam Reserve is a pleasant little reserve on the outskirts of Hobart and cyclists are allowed to ride the easy 4.4km track which circles the dam.  This ride will suit those looking for a nice family ride for the kids or a short easy relaxing ride for themselves.
Those searching for mountain bike trails will be better served heading for nearby trails up the nearby East Risdon Hills or Meehan Ranges.

Adamsfield Circuit

36km
Duration
Single Day
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.

I'm breaking the rules on this one and listing a track provided by Forestry Tasmania that I haven't ridden.  What I can tell you is this circuit is legal, that it appears to be mainly on gravel roads and fire trails and that it circumnavigates Mount Cameron in the North East of the State.  The recommended starting point on the map provided by Forestry Tasmania is the Scottsdale High School Mount Cameron Field Study Centre (or more specifically the Field Centre Gate) but I could also recommend starting at Little Blue Lake  just north of Pioneer on Gladstone Road (B52) for those who don't want to do the extra driving to the Field Centre.

Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
4-6 hours

Location

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.

Pelverata Falls (Snug Tiers)
MTB

Key Statistics

Distance
12km (6km each way)
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
1-3 hours

Location

The ride out to the top of Pelverata Falls is a fun, but at times challenging, ride with lots of big puddles and rocky sections to navigate through.

It is probably more for local riders looking for a short bit of technical riding with some nice views at the end.  However it can also make a great day out for less experienced riders (just so long as you are willing to walk your bike a bit) and there are plenty of options to extend this ride for those looking for more hours in the saddle.

Also a great winter option near hobart for those thinking of a ride in the snow.
