  • Perth's best trails

The Kalamunda Trail Network

The proximity to Perth, easy to navigate maps and signs, and beautiful, varying terrain make the Kalamunda Trail Network our top pick for the best riding near Perth. Whilst the main 22km loop, the Kalamunda Circuit may be challenging for beginners it is definitely doable, with B lines on all difficult obstacles and there are several shortcuts.

  • Our top pick for trails outside Perth

Best trails outside Perth – Margaret River

Margaret River has become one of our all time favourite places to ride. If you can spare a 2.5-hour drive, there are more than enough rewards – the picturesque and perfectly constructed trails, abundant trail styles, plus the endless post ride choices – brewery, winery, speciality coffee, chocolate shop, beach…whatever your heart desires post-ride, its here in Margaret River.

  • PERSONAL FAVOURITE OF WEMBLEY CYCLES

Pemberton

Pemberton is a beautiful little old timber town. This is a personal favourite of Wembley Cycles with a staff trip there in 2015 giving us a few days riding all the trails. The trails here require plenty of climbing but every climb is rewarded with great descents and some really techy singletrack. We stayed at the Pump Hill Farm Stay Cottages which meant we could roll straight out the door and be at the top of the Pump Hill trails to start our ride.

Langford Park, Jarrahdale

Langford Park in Jarrahdale is a perfect destination for beginner and advanced riders alike. The flowy singletrack with minimal climbing is a great introduction to people just getting used to the sport and can be super fast for those with experience.

  • Perth's Best Trails

Kalamunda Trail Network

Whether you are after countless kilometres of super flowing singletrack, big jumps and technical terrain (complete with the ability to shuttle run), easy gentle beginner loops or a mix of everything, the Kalamunda Trail Network has something to suit every style and ability. In addition to the fabulous trails, the network weaves its way through the beautiful natural hills landscape taking in a variety of ecosystems and showcasing the beauty of the WA bush.

  • Close to Perth
  • Perfect for all abilities

The Goatfarm

The Goatfarm could be described as a misunderstood gem. It is fair to say that while there are green and blue trails here, it is more difficult than most other trail networks because of the steeper climbs and descents. However, you will find a great mix of cross country and downhill trails. The climbs will be rewarded with amazing views of Perth city in the distance.

Dwellingup

Less than 90 minutes from the centre of Perth, the small forest town of Dwellingup has plenty to offer for all mountain biking abilities. The pretty town also has a mix of cafes and shops for you to enjoy a post ride coffee and meal or if you need to cool down check out the picturesque Lane Poole Reserve.

  • Perth Rail Trails

Railway Heritage Loop Perth Hills

A long flat off road ride that is family friendly and offers ample opportunities to see the natural and heritage sites in the Perth Hills. This loop does not include any difficult technical features and can be ridden on a Mountain bike or Cyclocross bike.

Forsyth’s Mill

Great for a group with mixed riding ability, Forsyth’s Mill packs in loads of features with no major climbs but lots of log rolls, berms and jumps, all which are optional. The trail can be ridden fast and hard with advanced riders making the most of the sweeping single track, rolling table tops and shore-style features, whilst beginners will enjoy the minimal elevation change and flowing style.

  • Personal Favourite of Wembley Cycles

Pemberton

Pemberton is a beautiful little old timber town. For us, there is no single trail that we agree stands out because we all have a different favourite. For this reason, plan a weekend away with your mates or your family and enjoy exploring all of them. You can also ride the Munda Biddi and enjoy some great scenery and a ride out to Big Brook Dam for a swim.

Margaret River

Set in the majestic Karri and Marri forests amidst gigantic trees and spectacular scenery, coupled with enough diverse trails to satisfy complete novices right through to expert riders, the Margaret River trails have quickly become arguably the State’s best riding destination.
