Forest PipelineLast Update: 6/11/2013
Some trail names are made up, if there is a different name please let us know.
Difficulty - Easy
Slope - Flat - Moderate - Undulating
Space - Open
Surface - Dirt - Loose rocks on dirt - Loose rocks on rock - Rock
Trail type - Firetrail
The section from Allambie Road to Wakehurst Parkway is the only full section of dirt fire trail along the whole length of the Forest Pipeline. In fact all the other wide sections of trail have better grass cover than most of the playing fields in the area!!
The entrance to this section is directly opposite the bus stop on Allambie Rd, just up from the Mortain Ave lights. Access is around the top side of the gate.
The opening section of trail is flat before the first of a number of moderate descents and climbs.
This section is completely straight from start to finish but the rough nature of the track is enough to keep you switched on. Plenty of large loose rocks rolling around on dirt or bedrock can cause plenty of problems if you aren't paying attention.
The hills on the way to the Wakehurst Parkway are challenging but ridable, I found the return journey far more taxing.
This trail sees it's fair share of walkers (and their unleashed dogs) accessing the walking tracks running back down to Manly Dam. These walking trails are NOT OPEN TO MOUNTAIN BIKERS!
Parking in Allambie Heights or on the other side of the Wakehurst Parkway and use the Pipeline Feeder Track (Single track and Wakehurst Parkway crossing)
