DESCRIPTION

Duck Creek Mountain Bike Park is a project of Northern Rivers Dirty Wheels Mountain Bike Club Inc. The Park is presently being constructed and is closed to the public. The park will contain approximately 8 kilometres of mountain bike specific cross country and all mountain style trails and a skills park. The trail network will include easy and very difficult trails. We expect the facility to be open in mid 2018.

HOW TO GET THERE

The site is situated approximately 5 kilometres east of Alstonville on the northern side of the Bruxner Highway. The access driveway is approximately 500m west of Gap Road.

FACILITIES

There are only four formalised car parking spaces available at the site.

There is no water or toilets available at this facility. Water and toilets are available in Alstonville which is approximately five kilometres to the west.

A trail map will be provided in the carparking area and can be downloaded from our site.

All trails will be sign posted.

MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL CODE OF CONDUCT

The trail network has been designed for the exclusive enjoyment of mountain bike riders of a variety of abilities. Some trails will be more difficult than others. The network includes natural terrain, constructed technical features, obstacles, drop offs, bridges and steep land. The trail surface may change over time and make riding more difficult. Take care at all times and always ride within your ability.

  • Always be in control of your bike and ride within your abilities.
  • Plan your ride and avoid riding alone.

  • Do not ride in wet or muddy conditions as it causes trail damage.
  • Share the trail and be courteous to other riders.
  • Take your rubbish home with you.
