Nationals offers an alternative route from Pirate Trail to Woodcutters and is suited for more experienced riders. This technical, challenging trail takes riders on a cross-country traverse with swooping, rocky, off-camber sections and tight uphill climbs across the hillside, before ending with a steep exit onto Woodcutters. From here, riders can connect to Vanilla Slice or continue up Woodcutters to Fingertips and Bloody Mary or the trailhead at the summit. 

Nationals is part of the Pemberton MTB Park

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.
