The Albany Downhill track is 700m long, drops 76m and takes in 41 technical trail features including jumps, drops and wooden berms. Beginners can tackle the track slowly, taking less challenging lines down the course, and more experienced riders can attack a harder approach to the jumps and drops.

This short downhill track has several unique features; the wooden berms, breathtaking views over King George Sound and the fact that it is only a couple of minutes walk from the city centre all make it unique in WA. You also don't necessarily need a full downhill bike to ride it.

Route Directions:

The track is a one-way downhill track from the start near the car park to where it opens out onto a fire rd near Hare St.

Must visit for any trip to Albany. Fun and technical trail, Closeness to the cafe's make for a great way to end a days riding of nice flowing trails and jumps. Great woodwork as well. Whilst downhill there is nothing complicated for a AM of even a well sorted hardtail.

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.
