Top Trail:   Munda Biddi Trail, Mundaring to Albany

Overview

The Munda Biddi Trail is Western Australia’s premier long distance off-road cycling experience. Starting in Mundaring, the 1000km trail meanders through scenic river valleys and the magnificent forests of the state’s South-West. Joined by purpose built track, the Munda Biddi (which means path through the forest in the Noongar language) uses a network of bush tracks, firebreaks, and disused railway formations and has sections suitable for cyclists of all ages and experience levels.

About the Trail

Every day out on the Munda Biddi Trail promises a different experience. Cycle through towering eucalyptus forests and ancient, unspoiled bushland, discovering plants and wildlife not found anywhere else in the world as you enter one of the world’s 25 biodiversity hotspots. Camp out in one of the twelve purpose built shelters spaced a day’s ride apart or stay in quaint country towns. Learn about Aboriginal culture and the rich heritage of the region as you visit wineries and attractions of the South-West.

In general, the northern section of the Munda Biddi Trail will be challenging as you negotiate in and out of the river valleys in the Darling Scarp. Don’t hesitate to get off and walk your bike on the hills and take in the scenery at a relaxed pace. Purpose-built cycle-friendly camp sites have been built every 35-40km between towns.

The Sculpture Park in Mundaring forms the northern terminus of the Munda Biddi Trail. Located 30 kilometres north-east out of the city of Perth, Mundaring is about a 45 minute drive into the heart of the hills. Take Great Eastern Highway, through Midland and make the climb up Greenmount Hill where you will begin to feel the change in the air!

The most convenient way to get to the Trail is with your own vehicle or to have someone drop you off. Vehicle access points are marked with a red car on the Munda Biddi Trail maps. You can do an out-and-back trip or arrange to leave a car at either end of your ride.

The Trail is well marked with trail markers positioned on yellow posts. As a general rule trail markers are situated every few hundred meters, or when required at critical intersections to point you in the right direction. Riders are encouraged to always carry a map to ensure you stay on track and are advised to check the Munda Biddi Trail or the Department of Parks and Wildlife website for the latest track and trail conditions.
