Destination Trails were commissioned by the Project Manager to re-open and re-shape a selection of trails after the bushfires of late 2019. The fire destroyed the pine plantations and caused a hot burn of native forest areas. Trail recovery was divided amongst a number of professional trail contractors and local mountain bike (MTB) clubs.

Note trails built with strict adherence to the IMBA Trail Design Principles survived the intense fires and subsequent heavy summer rainfalls extremely well. A good re-shape with key learnings from the early days of IMBA guided trails in Australia and some modern high speed flow enhancements for the revitalised descents. All large dangerous trees in the trail corridor were felled and placed at a safe distance from the trail.

Destination Trails was lucky enough to be asked to rework trails that Director Nick Bowman had designed and constructed in previous roles. Namely, the following trails:

  • Ezy Rider (Green Circle)
  • Outcrops (Blue Square)
  • Green Corps (Blue Square)
  • Dynamic Tension (Blue Square)
  • Immaculate Compaction (Blue Square)
  • Point of Knoll Return (Blue Square)
  • Green Smoothie (Green Circle)
  • Middle Earth (Green Circle)
