Tasmania Mountain Biking
Tasmania Mountain Biking has really taken off in recent years. We have in Tasmania a number of constructed mountain bike parks.
Close to Hawthorn Lodge is the excellent Maydena Bike Park which continues to expand with new trails being all the time. The mountain bike trails are designed to suit all levels from expert to beginner. We offer excellent value packages for Maydena Bike Park with transfers.
At Maydena Bike Park there is an uplift service operated by a series of shuttle buses. If you are an experienced rider you will normally do about 5 runs a day. Maydena is very well resourced with a cafe at the bottom and the top of the mountain.
We are twenty minutes from Maydena and so a good place to stay if visiting Maydena Bike Park. We offer a package where we pick guests up at Hobart Airport and transfer to Maydena each day.
Closer to Hobart and about 30 minutes is the North South Track that starts at the Springs on Mt Wellington. We offer a day tour for Mt Wellington Mountain Biking.
