About Banishment, Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park
This undulating loop trail is designed with less experienced riders in mind and suitable for beginners. Highlights include riding through the quarry and cross-country exploration of the Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park. If you would like a longer ride, this loop connects with Ngarna loop. To get to this trail, take the Convict loop trail.
What's in a name? Dating back to the early colonial days, the Goat Farm was a convict depot where convict labour was used to mine bluestone from the quarries. Keep an eye out for some of the original stone footings as you ride. The name of this trail reflects the times of the early convict labourers and the challenges that they faced.
The Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park contains over 20km of mountain bike trails and a dedicated Skills Park with skills and jump areas. The Goat Farm trails range from Easy (Green) to Extreme (Double Black) and include four trails suitable for adaptive cyclists.
