Part of the Arklow network, this trail is totally crazy! You have never seen so much old school single track, in such a little space! It keeps you on your toes as it twists and turns, loop after loop, through the jarrah forest.

It's a 7 km, blue trail, mix of single track and fire trail, with a killer climb and good downhill run. Throw in a decent log ride and a series of jumps and it’s a lot of fun!

You will find Rays Trail about 5 km north of town on Harris River Rd, just past Harris River Estate Winery or you can ride out from town on the Munda Biddi and Dead Cats to access Rays.

There is access to the winery directly off the trail, making it the perfect lunch stop, after a gruelling morning's ride.

There are shuttle services operating in town - enquire at the Collie Visitor Centre

Fun single track to ride with flowing bermed sections with small jumps , technical short climbs and log crossings set amongst some nice bush. Rode trail after heavy rain the day before to get away from slippery muddy trails at Pile Rd this track was compacted nicely. Rode a few laps of the trail and each time getting faster really enjoyable morning .Well done to the local trail makers good little track.... Well worth a visit.

Older style XC track fairly tight and compounded. The Dog Log realignment has more berm's and some more flow. Good to ride at night as there are old bike reflectors around the trail. A lot of the trail features were burnt during the burn off but still good fun to ride.

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.
