About Big Pine, The Pines, Margaret River
Located right on the edge of Margaret River town, the Pines MTB tracks are some of the best mountain bike trails in WA. Easy fire road climbs, fast, flowing singletrack descents, berms and fun table top jumps characterise these awesome tracks.
With the easy climbs and great fun smooth rollable trails the Pines are suitable for riders of all abilities. For the intermediate to more advanced riders there are plenty of berms to rail and table tops to jump.
You will find yourself riding back up to the middle of the forest time and time again to re-ride your favourite trails.
The trails are located just to the North of Carters Rd, which itself is the first turn to the left (west) when leaving Margaret River to the north.
There is a small car park on Carters Rd just before the rail trail crossing. Or park at the Rotary car park on the north side of town or it is not far to ride from your accommodation if staying in town - particularly if you are near the rail trail.
There is no set order to ride the trails in, and once you get a feel for the forest you will devise your own loops based on which track you prefer. A full loop is around 10km. Allow a couple of hours to explore these trails.
The area was logged in 2015. For up-to-date details on trails contact the visitor centre.

Park the car in the fire road intersection , close your eyes, spin round three times and just ride in the direction you end up facing and in minutes you'll find something to whoop about. Trust me on this.
If you want to ride trails built by like-minded bikers and you're in town - 'drop-in'.

I've visited this area for three Cape to Cape races and a few random long weekend visits, and I'm yet to arrive back at the campsite/homestay/rental without a big stupid grin on my big stupid face. Kudos to MRORCA. Here's hoping that the quality of trails will be maintained once after the harvesting!
