Glenorchy to begin upgrade of North South Track ascent from Monday June 7. Read on for track closures


Glenorchy City Council is excited to announce the commencement of works associated with the Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park Masterplan.

Works commencing Monday June 7 include realigning a section of the North-South Track climbing trail and touching up other sections, adding some switchbacks and smoothing out uphill rides.

For a location of works, please see the below map (realignment is Route R1).

 These works should be completed within 3 weeks.

Track closures

The North-South Track (ascent) will be closed between Five-ways and Tolosa fire trail during upgrades. All other tracks will remain open, including the North-South Track (descent). We will have signage at Five-ways and Tolosa fire trail notifying riders of the closures.

Alternate routes

Two alternate routes to ascend to the upper Mountain Bike Park exist along the Tolosa/Priest fire trail and Merton fire trails (see below map).
