Pirate Trail is one of the most technically challenging trails in the Pemberton Mountain Bike Park. There are multiple rough descents followed by pinch climbs that will put riders’ bike handling skills and fitness to the test. Technical obstacles include rock gardens, roots, log drops and tight corners. The second main descent features a large rock garden with A and B options. As always, it is advisable to check the A line before riding. 

The trail ends on the Woodcutters fire trail where riders can pedal back up to the main trail head, down to the Trout Hatchery or drop down into Link Track to return to the pool.  

Pirate Trail 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.
