Mountain bike riding

The extensive network of roads through State forests in NSW provides the enthusiastic mountain bike rider with plenty of opportunities for an easy or more challenging ride.

A network of trails has been developed in Bondi State Forest near Bombala, while closer to Sydney the State forests of the Southern Highlands are popular for a pine forest adventure.

Before you visit

Take a look at important information when visiting state forests for tips on safety and sustainable recreation.

Remember, permits are required from Forestry Corporation for commercial activities and most organised events in State forests.
