Trail Network: Kalamunda Trails
With over 40km of fully signed single-track, the Kalamunda Trails area is the most popular MTB destination in WA. It is only a 40 minutes drive from the centre of Perth, and is situated in both picturesque National Park and State Forest. The Black Stump Pump Track is an outstanding facility suitable for riders of all ages and abilities and a great introduction to mountain biking.
Based on the IMBA grading there are approximately 6 kilometres of green trails and a skills loop with information boards discussing technique. The green trails are mainly on the western side of the network.
Intermediate IMBA blue trails account for the majority of the trails at 34 kilometres in the network. There are three advanced IMBA black trails and two of them feed off the top of Mt Gunjin making shuttle runs possible in a vehicle and dropping approximately 100m in height. With the loose pea gravel tyre selection is important with larger grippy tyres favoured. The middle of summer is also to be avoided due to extreme heat and loose dry soil. The best time to ride is often a day after some light rain to help hold the soil together providing a faster surface to ride on.
Bikes hire and classes are available from Rock 'n' Roll Mountain Biking and a shuttle service is run by volunteers on some Sundays.

Parking Areas and facilities
A safe place to leave your car and the largest car park in the area. The mountain bike friendly cafe also offers camel rides. The food here is great and the scones and camel toe biscuits are highly recommended.
They also carry a few bike spares should you forget/break anything.
Farrell Grove car park and picnic area
Large DBCA managed car park off Mundaring Weir Rd. There are lots of picnic tables and some toilets here. Great place to park if you want to ride the trails around Scorpion or Gunjin, especially if the Dell is full.
Black Stump car park
A good place to park at the western end of the trails network. There is a trailhead map and noticeboard.
Cross Mundaring Weir Rd to the north side and pick up the trail from here. After 50m you will have a choice of the longer, harder Blue rated "Slippery When Dry" trail or the easier Green rated trail.
One of the busiest and smaller car parks. It has great trail access, toilets and several picnic areas in beautiful bush surroundings.
