Stromlo Forest Park was born out of the ashes of the infamous 2003 Canberra bushfires. After sweeping the mountain clear of native and plantation forests, the fires revealed potential for a world class cycling facility.
More than a decade on, the trees are re-growing along with a network of trails that has hosted a MTB World Championship, World Cup round, several Australian National Championships and numerous 24hr races. Everyone in town raves about Skyline and Luge, but there are so many more to choose from – which is your favourite?
There’s loads more information available at the official Stromlo Forest Park website.
Here is the overall precinct map, covering all the bike trails as well as the other facilities in the park.
