Cripple Creek Gallery

A network of fire trails that spans from Blaxland to Yellow Rock. Great for a short rides. Best for linking the Lower Blue Mountains to create some epic rides.

Meeting Point: 

Warrimoo's Recreation Reserve is at the end of Rickard Road and makes for a good meeting spot close to the trails.

Full Description: 

A network of Fire trails connecting Blaxland, Mt Riverview, Warrimoo, Sun Valley and Yellow Rock.

Unlike most Blue Mountains fire trails that run aling the ridges, Cripple Creeks trails run through the Valley. This makes for a very scenic ride.

There are a few pinch climbs and the notorious concrete hill, it has a few variant nicknames but the only one I can say is Crap Hill.

What makes Cripple creek really fun is the old fire trails. These have eroded right back to the sandstone rock and offer some challenging descents or very technical climbs.

There are a few creek crossings so weather timing is very important.
