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.

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.

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 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.

The Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park is only 15 minutes from the centre of Hobart and contains cross country, downhill and jumps courses.   The Park has the added advantage of being connected to the wider network of trails across Mt Wellington, and in particular is where you end up at the end of the North South track.  The route described here is a 5km cross country course, but this is only one of a growing network of trails that can be ridden in the park.

This park (opened November 2012) aims to fill a skills development niche in the mountain bike scene around Hobart and will be best enjoyed by newer riders and intermediate riders looking to develop their skills.  It would also be a great place for the kids who will love the jumps and easy riding.

As well as a Dirt Jump Park, the area contains a 200 metre 'kids corner' loop, the 1.3km "Holy Roller" for beginners and the 350 metre "Black Betty" which has a range of technical features, drops and bermed corners.

Connecting together some of the most accessible off-road riding trails around Kingston, this loop is a great way to discover some trails close to Hobart and plant the seed for further exploration.
There are plenty of great views, beautiful, quiet trails, with a bit of technical fun, and even a bit of history all thrown in. Cap this off with a great downhill run at the end to take you home.  This is one of my favourite rides close to Hobart.

Location

Climbing nearly 1000 metres in around 15kms, this route takes you from the visitors centre at the entrance of Mt Field National Park to the car park at Lake Dobson.  Although entirely on a gravel road that is open to traffic, this is a brilliant ride whether you're seeking the fun and beauty of riding in the snow in winter, seeing the fagus change colour in Autumn or heading up to enjoy the upper regions of the park through summer.

A National Parks Pass will be needed to do this ride.

Location

The Lime Bay Nature Reserve doesn't get a lot of visitors, but contains a surprisingly large network of  trails linking together some beautiful beaches and lagoons with some great convict history thrown in to boot.  These trails provides excellent riding options for both the family through to the hardcore cyclist looking for a hard workout along some tough sandy trails.  The route described here tries to get you around to most of the best spots in the park, but the reserve is compact enough that you can just go out  there, point your wheel down a trail and go and explore.

The Meehan Ranges on the outskirts of Hobart contains a complex network of tracks and trails heading up over the Meehan Ranges which make a great playground for beginner through to advanced riders.  The best way to discover these trails is with someone who already knows them, or just download the GPX files and go exploring. The Hobart MTB Rides facebook group is a good group to find some riding buddies.
