Pinch Track is a climb/access trail which starts close to the Trout Hatchery on the western side of the ‘Main Hill’. It is named after the rocky pinches that you will encounter towards the start of the climb. Once up the pinches, the trail eases into a gentle climb which eventually ends with an option to continue up the hill on Cool Running Uphill or across the fire road to finish the climb on Relentless Blue XC.

Locals Tip: Start your uphill journey on Cool Running Uphill and then cut across at the link to Pinch Track to avoid the pinches.

This is a multi-use trail, MTB riders must give way to other users.

Pinch Track is part of the Pemberton MTB Park Network

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
