After the Canberra bush fires of 2003, the landscape of what is now Stromlo Forest Park survived as nothing more than a bare expanse of land. Scarred by the fires and home to not even a single tree, all the pine trees and mountain bike trails had been destroyed.
Since the subsequent unveiling of the park in 2007 the forest has made an impressive comeback, the trees continue to prosper and the mountain bike trails get better every day.
The Park now offers its users a huge variety of world class trails. From a large selection of beginner and intermediate trails to the same tracks used at the 2009 UCI World Mountain Bike Championships, the park offers something for every mountain bike rider out there.
When planning a ride, be sure to check the Trail Conditions link for up to date information regarding all the mountain bike trails and their current condition.
