  • Your shuttle driver will take you back to Irvine’s for lunch (or anywhere else requested).

  • Radios will be provided to communicate between staff and riders. 

  • At the end of the day please hand in the radios to staff and sign out. 

The Gorge offers trails that are grades 3 to 6, with 23% being grade 3 and 52% are 4. There are a lot of trails to choose from and many link seamlessly into a continuous single-track experience from top to bottom (a vertical drop of around 1000m).

The signage and route selection throughout the park, and each trail has been built to be a consistent grade from top to bottom. 

FIRST TIMERS RUNS

Check out our route options on the Trails page and start with a couple of lower graded ones to get a feel for the trails. Ask one of the crew what route may suit your first run.

THE NELSON MOUNTAIN BIKE CLUB

Joining the Nelson Mountain Bike Club is recommended. You’ll easily cover your costs as you will receive a $30 discount on your scheduled shuttle pass (adult price only), a permit for riding in Sharlands forest in Nelson, a huge number of member discounts and benefits (including petrol and beer), and you will be supporting the club and all the work it does in the region. One member of your group will need to join the Nelson Mountain Bike Club. They will then be able to make the booking and add the rest of the riding party.
