Royal National Park

Royal National Park mountain bike trail.

Where: Royal National Park is located South if Sydney
Distance: The basic loop is 7km. However there are numerous side tracks to explore and you can easily do 20km+ on the day.
Difficulty: For the most part the basic loop would be classified as easy. However when you go down temptation creek this would be in the hard basket.

Illawarra Escarpment

Illawarra Escarpment

Unfortunately most of this trail has been closed off. You could still ride it at your own risk however there are trespassing signs after the 2km mark. It’s a really nice ride and very green. But due to the shortness of the ride I would only recommend if you live in the area. Not really worth the trip for that short distance. My round trip was just under 5kms.
