Welcome to Highlands Trails

Highlands Trails is based in Bundanoon, NSW, and has been in existence since 2005, becoming an incorporated organisation in 2010. It is made up of volunteers, who are primarily local residents, who all have a passion for riding mountain bikes. We are affiliated with the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA), the world authority on sustainable MTB trailbuilding and advocacy.

Our Mission is to “Help people of all ages live a more rewarding life through facilitating access and development of world class mountain bike trail networks in the Southern Highlands.”

Our core values consist of;

  • Believing in ourselves and our ability to change the world around us
  • Challenging ourselves to do better each time
  • Having fun
  • Seeing world class experiences on bikes for people of all ages and skill levels
  • Adopting transparency in everything we do

We think big and at the moment act locally. We’re part of the Sunset Working Group for Bicycling Strategy for the Wingecarribee Shire Council, as well as other groups throughout the Southern Highlands. In terms of trail networks we have been heavily involved in developing the Wingello trail network in the Wingello State Forest, as well as the Jumping Rock trail network on private land.

If we are not building trails, we can be found organizing events like Trail Ales to raise funds for the group, working with the Wingecarribee Shire Council on their Cycling Strategy for the shire, fixing bikes, and riding them at every chance we have.

Take a look at the People page to see who the usual suspects are, check out the maps of the local trail networks, sign up to our eNewsletter or leave us a comment on our Facebook page.

In the meantime, happy riding, and we hope to see you soon on the trails.

Wingello State Forest MTB Park

Highlands Trails along with Wild Horizons and local riders were the pioneers of the trail development at Wingello State Forest, in New South Wales’ Southern Highlands, and have been instrumental in developing and maintaining the current network (approx 14km) of purpose built single track, interlinked with pre-existing fire trails. Three distinct loops have been developed; Red – 25km, Yellow – 20km and Blue – 5km.

Membership is not expensive. It’s for a good cause, and memberships are one of the few ways we pay for our ongoing activities such as buying tools, trail signage etc.
It also gives you access to Jumping Rock rides – by being a paid up member, you are able to join us for the regular ride on the private land we develop trails on.
