Mount York

A full run of mt york

This is the best way to sample all the the convict trail on Mt york. Has some tough techi ups, which will have most people off and pushing now and then,

Some nice techi downs and some lovely flowy trail.

Starting at the bottom of Mt Vic pass the first 100m of Berghoffers is tough but doable with the hardest bit going over the drain as you pop back out onto the highway.

Grand tour of the classic All Mountain trails on Hassans Wall

Wasn't sure how this one would end up.

Set off and caught a site of the rare and endangered Meggsie-on-a-bike, this is the second siting in 2 weeks so it appears they could be back from the brink of extinction. It was such an honour to interact with one in it's natural habitat....

Umm we headed on up and hit the Town House track and then came back around town where Meggsie decided that was enough for his second ride back in far too long.

The Oaks

From Woodford down the Oaks adding on Mount Portal

Starting up at Woodford, ride down the Oaks firetrail. Ride down the Oaks single track until you hit a Firetrail and turn right. This will take you back out onto the Oaks Firetrail. Turn left and then right again. Signs will guide you to Mount Portal. There is a tough climb but the two lookouts make it worth while. Once you have taken in the views, return the way you came back to the single track and enjoy the rest of your ride to Glenbrook.

Cox's, Lockyer's, Lawson's, Hartley Vale and Berghoffer's

Started from the end of Mt York Rd at the tourist car park.
dropped Cox's, went back up Lockyer's, though that wasn't the plan.
Accross to Lawson's, nice ride and right around the point to the main HWay, back up the Berghoffer's.
Garmin GPS says 28.8km total trip !?!?!? (wt...)
and the altimiter says about 200m each way down and up times two.
only a short 8 hours all up. (yeh, still huffing 5 hours later)

Up the Oaks taking in Pisgah Ridge, not quiet to the top then return via St Helenas hike-a-bike section.

Horrible hike a bike at the end, but...

Think on the attached GPS trail we were meeting guys coming from the top and turned round when we found them.

Tougher than it sounds - one way from Wentworth Falls to Glenbrook via Andersons and The Oaks.

Small side trip at Woodford to the store for some supplies. Apparently the Woodford store has now closed so the direct route is shown below:

The Oaks Up & Back

The Oaks

The famous Oaks firetrail up and back from Glenbrook Station.

Starting off by Glenbrook station this ride takes a direct route up to the top of The Oaks firetrail. It's sealed road from the station down to the causeway, over Glenbrook Creek and up the other side but then the dirt soon kicks in.

Follow this firetrail the whole way, for some it's a real slog, for others this is fun!

Killer Climb

Even though it all seems uphill, there are a few descents which translate into nasty pinches on the way back so take it easy!
