Our Favourite Mountain Bike Trails in Newcastle

At CFN, we love riding our mountain bikes. Newcastle is home so some of the best trails in Australia.

Glenrock State Conservation Park

Located just 1km from our shop, Glenrock is the perfect place to ride your mountain bike near Newcastle. Offering trails for all levels of cyclists, Glenrock has a network spanning approximately 40km with stunning views of the ocean. The trails are diverse – with a range of singletrack, doubletrack and fast fire trails! We recommend a 130mm Dual Suspension for Glenrock, such as the BMC Speedfox.

Homesville Mountain Bike Trails

Homesville is home to some classic old school mountain bike tracks. Located 20mins from our shop near the Sugarloaf range, Homesville brings “fun” back into mountain biking. We recommend a 130mm Dual Suspension for Homesville such as the GT Sensor.

Awaba and the Watagans

Awaba Mountain Bike Park is the home of the local mountain bike racing community. With a huge network of well groomed singletrack, Awaba is fast and fun. There is also a newly implemented development track for riders of all abilities. We recommend a 100mm Dual Suspension for Awaba, such as a Felt Edict.

Whitebridge and Redhead

Hand crafted for the annual Port to Port MTB race, the trails of Redhead and Whitebridge offer singletrack like you have never seen it before. With flowy turns and not too much climbing, these trails are perfect for intermediate riders and those that want to “have fun.” We recommend a Carbon Hardtail such as the Felt Doctrine.
