Youngtown Regional Park

Trail Category
The Youngtown Regional Park is a pleasant little park on the outskirts of Launceston.  Although the ride is only a short 2.6km loop, the track has a good surface and makes for a nice ride if you're in the area.  It is mainly easy riding with a spot or two that will challenge beginner riders, but nothing technical.  The circuit would also make for a pleasant hour or so with young kids able to ride the distance.

Zeehan and Mt Heemskirk Loop
MTB

Key Statistics

Distance
30 km
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
3-5 hrs

Location

This mountain bike route starts and finishes in Zeehan, and in between it manages to combine the fun of cycling a  100 metre tunnel, some great riding along an old tramway line and some awesome, though technical, riding out along old gravel 4WD trails along the foothills of  Mt Heemskirk.   Experienced riders will love the challenge this route provides, however even moderate riders who are prepared to walk a few sections will really enjoy this ride.

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.

Tahune Airwalk Ride
MTB

Key Statistics

Distance
6km
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
1 hour

Location

A 6km mountain bike loop has been constructed at the Tahune Airwalk, though only half of it is new single trail with the return journey mainly along gravel roads.  The  outward journey includes some fun riding through nice forest and alongside the river with chances to explore sites less visited by the crowds.

I do note that the official website lists the "Forest Bike Track" as being part of your General Admission to the site, so you may need to pay to access the trail (this wasn't the case last time I was there).

Trip Hill is not a ride for everyone, in fact I think it would best be described as a ride for the crazy ones.  For a start it’s a ride up a hill from which you get no view, several of the best sections are currently so overgrown (April 2014) that I found myself pushing my bike downhill, a lot of the riding is through recently harvested forests and yet … if you’re in the area, you've ridden all the other rides and you’re looking for some good old fashioned bush tracks that and don’t mind the odd hike-a-bike … well you could just enjoy this little ride.

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.

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.

Risdon Vale Sports Ground (Car Park)
The Risdon Vale Trail is a short 2km XC loop built as part of a local initiative by the Risdon Vale Bike Collective and Blue Hill Trails. As it was built by young locals (under the guidance of a professional trail builder) it is a pretty solid achievement.

This is probably more a trail for local riders looking for some new trails or, rather than interstate or visiting riders. The Bike Park is pretty impressive and incorporates dirt jumps and a pump track
