Hill Rd runs all the way from the 8 Mile Gate Carpark, up through the shuttle zone and back down the other size of the forest ending at  the intersection of Redtank Rd / Pipeline Rd and the end of Eagle vs Shark.

The section  between 8 Mile Gate Carpark and the  shuttle pickup is a very flat climb, with the worst of it in the final 200m,  however for all intents and purposes itís a flat ride.  Many of the locals park at the gate and ride  up to the shuttle zone.  On the way back itís a case of getting into  top gear and using what little slope there is to your advantage.

As well as  being the road to the shuttles itís the easiest way to get to Old Chevy by simply turning right onto Reservoir Rd just short of the shuttle pickup.  Spring  Roll heads off to the left just short of Reservoir Rd.

Be warned  the trail can get quite busy with walkers, riders, shuttles and forestry  vehicles.  Keep a good ear and eye out while  riding in either direction.


This website is brought to you by MTB weekend warrior Aaron Markie.
There are plenty of great websites out there with a wealth of information about Mountain Bike Trails,
however in my experience its hard to get a good mix of info, maps, photos and videos of trails I've never ridden.
The idea of this website is to tie those 4 elements together and give you a more detailed look at the MTB Trails I ride.
If you have anything to add then let me know.
