Home to the popular Adventure loop, plenty of wildlife and natural bushland to take in, on and off the trails. Make sure to pop into the Goat Shed for coffee and cake. You can check out Flow Mountain Bike’s review on Belair National Park here.
A popular riding destination in the northern suburbs located in the middle of rare woodland and grassland habitat, these trails are perfect for beginner and intermediate riders but there is plenty of fun to be had for experienced rides.
The park holds its roots to once popular unsanctioned trails, but now has a pump track, three main sanctioned downhill trails, a XC loop which includes a flowy downhill section and a few rideable walking trails. If you wish to get rowdy several unsanctioned black trails remain (if you look close enough). Make sure to check out Flow Mountain Bike’s review on youtube here. If this is not enough, this park also links onto the Mitcham Council Saddle Hill and O’dears trails and is a short pedal away from the sturt gorge trail network so you're not short on choice. Please note this park is also adjacent to the Watiparinga Reserve owned by National Trust SA who do not currently allow riding on their land. While their trails look enticing, riding them puts any future chance of National Trust SA opening their many parks to riding at risk.
One of the easiest trial networks to shuttle in Adelaide, these trails were once privy to those in the know but have become more popular since bushfires have temporarily closed the nearby Fox Creek Mountain bike park. These trails do have some advanced features all which are flagged and have b-lines. If you are looking for jumps and drops to get the adrenaline pumping this is the place for you. Check out local Legend Kurtis showing off these trails on his channel here here.
