One of the State’s most picturesque freshwater swimming pools, Pemberton Pool, is listed in the State Register of Heritage Places.

Formed by damming a natural watercourse within a forest setting, the pool has been used by locals and tourists going back to the 1930s.

This is an inspirational story of an isolated but thriving forestry community who banded together to build a swimming pool for the benefit of the wider community..

This trail is fast and technical. Riders will be challenged by tight corners and off camber sections that will put cornering and braking skills to the test. With multiple grade reversals, maintaining momentum is key to finding flow on Wahoo.

Towards the end of the trail, riders will encounter a rock garden feature which can be rolled, dropped or avoided via the ‘B’ line - it is recommended to walk this section to check it out the first time. 

The trail concludes at the Trout Hatchery with good access opportunities to return back up the main hill on Cool Runnings Uphill or Pinch Track. Riders looking to venture further can venture over to ‘Pump Hill’ to ride popular trails Drop Bear and Longshanks.

Wahoo is accessed from the trail head at the top of the ‘Main Hill’ behind the Pemberton Pool.
