The Blue Mountains can be easily navigated by bike if you’re riding on flat terrain, you should be able to cover around 2-3km in 10 minutes.
The Great Blue Mountains Trail is a big idea, to develop a regional trail from east to west across the Blue Mountains ridgeline, accessible from all towns, villages and train stations along the way.
The Trail links to the Anderson, Ingar and the Oaks fire trails to the east, and will eventually link up with Lithgow and Oberon trail networks to the west.
The Upper Mountains component of the trail will extend from Wentworth Falls through to Mount York and will provide a variety of pedestrian and cyclist opportunities to travel through the scenic natural areas and heritage townships of the Blue Mountains.
The Great Blue Mountains Trail is identified in the Blue Mountains Bike Plan 2020. Once the trail is completed it will play an important role in meeting the growing demand for safe cycling facilities and provide a safe corridor connecting residents and tourists with town centres and natural bushland environments.
The trail is accessible and supported by trail marks and brochure/maps.
Council is continuing to seek funding for the completion of others section of the Trail.
