Willowie Forest Mountain Bike Trails (Melrose)

Client: Department for Environment and Water Date: May 2021 - November 2021 Location: South Australia Map: Get directions

The mountain bike specific network was designed and constructed as one way, single direction trails and consists of a stacked loop system, with beginner trails located around the main trailhead and more advanced trails further up into the hill. We left the excavator at home and made sure the new 17kms Willowie trail network fits right in with the existing Melrose singletrack network that you know and love.

It’s raw and rocky in places but it’s also got some flowy goodness that you’d come to expect from us! The terrain is less ” steep/rolling hills” than the town trails and definately a lot more “Flinders Ranges”.

The network comprising of trails suited for all skills levels can easily be accessed from Melrose via a cruisy 9km ride on the Rail Trail or you can park at the trailhead, just off the Horrocks Hwy. The trailhead also has toilets, shelters, picnic tables and a bike repair station.
