Road building and tree thinning operations
There is currently a large amount of construction underway at Sparrow Hill with the realignment of the Kings Highway as well as some tree thinning.
While there is still 20km of trails available for riding when the construction team is not onsite, we recommend that you avoid riding at Sparrow during the week and exercise caution on weekends.
With so many other great trails to choose from including the new trails at Kowan Forest that were build for the Mont 24hr we have been steering clear of riding at Sparrow Hill.
If you are heading out that way the new trails at Kowan can be accessed from the Sparrow Hill car park. Cross the road and ride towards Bungendore for approximately 100 meters, take a left turn onto the dirt road go through the gate and then continue riding along the road past a house on your left, along the road a little further you will see the start of the single track heading off on the right hand side. Once you are on the single track it is a really easy 18km (or so) loop to follow. A super fun single track loop that flows really well and it guaranteed to make you smile.
In addition to the road building tree thinning is also underway at Sparrow – click on the links to download the the Public Notification Letter regarding the three thinning operations or the updated Tree Thinning Map of Sparrow Hill.
With an amazingly flowing design the trails cater to the even the most inexperienced of riders while providing thrills for anyone prepared tackle the smooth, undulating tracks with a pinch of speed.
Currently with construction underway only 20km of the the Sparrow Hill trail network is available for riding.
Locals Trail Tip
For those seeking a further challenge, “Sparrow Loop” will provide some serious excitement with some tight and tricky rock sections and “Bobsled” will leave you dreaming of the smooth flowing descents that only Sparrow Hill can provide.
