Off-Road Mountain Biking at Manly Dam

Home > Sydney > Sport | Outdoor
Published December 31st 2010
The biking track at Manly Dam is one of the best tracks for off-road mountain biking in Sydney. With views of Manly Reservoir, and bordered by the bushland of Garigal National Park, the biking track is not only a thrill for keen cyclists, but is also a visual treat for anyone with a passion for nature.

By travelling the bike trail, you can enjoy up to 3 hours of quality cycling. Although it is recommended to have at least an intermediate level of skill in order to tackle Manly Dam, anyone with the stamina to ride for 20 kilometres should be well-placed to make the journey.

What is most striking about the journey is that although you are still quite close to the city, the rugged terrain and the stunning views will make you feel as if you have left Sydney behind. This makes it particularly enjoyable to finish your ride and then take time to enjoy a bite to eat at one of Manly's many cafes and restaurants.

If you prefer to maintain the illusion of remoteness when you eat your lunch, you might also consider making use of one of Manly Dam's four picnic areas. It is even possible to book a table before your arrival.

Although off-road mountain biking is an enjoyable pastime for riders, it is important to note that Warringah Council has laid down certain Codes of Conduct to guarantee that the environment continues to thrive even with the many visitors.

It is also important to remember that despite your proximity to Manly, there are still certain natural hazards that may interfere with your off-road biking. If you would like to ensure that you are always kept abreast with environmental changes in the area, you should subscribe to the following address: mtbiketrailinfo@warringah.nsw.gov.au.
