Upper Luge track closed as Riding the Mountain Track masterplan breaks ground


Riding the Mountain breaks ground

The trails will be built by the City of Hobart within a year - two will be for mountain bike riders only, two will be shared use.

The design of each track underwent comprehensive on-ground environmental, heritage and Aboriginal value assessments using local knowledge to ensure minimum impacts. The detailed studies undertaken to inform the project and support the planning application are available below under assessment reports.

Together, the four trails form a keystone in the City of Hobart's Riding the Mountain plan, which aims to improve the riding network in kunanyi/Mount Wellington's foothills and better serve local and tourism needs.

Visit the City of Hobart website for full details of each of the tracks.
