Down Dale connects riders from the trail head on the north side of the Pump Hill trails to the trail head at the top of the south side. It is downhill and machine built with a few rollers and pumps, one of the flowiest trails in the park. The trail ends at Pump Hill Road, so use caution when exiting and crossing the road.

Locals Tip: Use Down Dale to connect your circuit from Pumphill Uphill to the southern side trails, such as Nearly Gnarly. Also a fun little run if you find yourself with some time to burn while others are still climbing. Use Pump Hill Road to return to the top fire trail and trailhead. 

Down Dale 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.
