Tangara Trail

Key Statistics

Distance
47km: 35km (Southern Loop) + 17km (Northern Loop)
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
3-5 hours

Location

The Tangara Trail is an almost invisible web of interconnecting trails between Seven Mile Beach and South Arm.  It often weaves between property boundaries and heads along quiet roads, beaches and bush trails.  There is good tangara trail signage all over the area, so with a bit of help from the website and a sense of adventure you really could just go trail chasing.

The route described here knits together some of the best sections of the trail, but throws in a few extra bits as well to make a nice figure of eight ride that will give even the most experienced cyclist a good day out.

Tooms Lake Circuit

Key Statistics

Distance
20kms
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
2-4 hours

Location

This 20km circuit will interest both those who like to leisurely explore new areas on their bike as well as those who like their biking to have a bit of adventure and challenge.  The circuit follows old 4wd tracks and is pretty flat the whole way around.  Any reasonably fit cyclist could tackle the ride, but there's a few tricky sections (and lots of mud) so be careful on this one.

Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area

Key Statistics

Distance
16km (out and back)
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
1-2 hours

Hidden away in the hills above Launceston, The Trevallyn Nature Recreation Area now has one of the newest and nicest sections of purpose built single track in Tasmania.   With 8kms of dedicated single track stretching from the Gorge Road to the Hoo Hoo hut, this is where you're inevitably going to start any play in the park, however if you're a little more adventurous and have a little more time, then don't overlook the other multiple use trails in the reserve.  There's kilometres of trails out there for those looking for a more old school Tasmanian experience.

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.

Wolfram Mine (Patons Road)

Key Statistics

Distance
45kms
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
5-7 hours

Location

Heading up the Upper Forth valley, this track takes you on a journey into the World Heritage Area along what was, up until the mid 1980's, a road to the Oakleigh Creek Wolfram Mines.  The first section is still regularly used by kayakers seeking to paddle the Forth river and as such is fairly reasonably well maintained, but as you make your way further up the valley the track deteriorates and you find yourself in a beautiful and seldom visited area of Tasmania.  This is a true gem of a ride for those who like to explore remote places on two wheels, but is not for the inexperienced, unprepared or those looking for groomed single track.

Youngtown Regional Park

Key Statistics

Distance
2.6km circuit
Grade
Duration
Single Day
Time (hrs)
< 1 hr
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

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.
