Nail Can Mountain Bike Trail Maintenance

Improving the mountain bike rider experience at Nail Can Hill.

In partnership with the Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers and NSW Crown Lands, we will be undertaking important maintenance to parts of the existing mountain bike trail network on Nail Can Hill.

As part of the project, over 10km of the existing trail network will be upgraded to improve the rider experience. Upgrades will include:

  • Repairing erosion
  • Undertaking general trail maintenance
  • Closing illegal trails and B-lines

Some new trail features such as jumps, rollers or bridges may also be installed as part of the works.

The maintenance works were identified in a 2020 Nail Can Hill Trail Audit conducted by local trail construction company Terrain Trails, and aim to retain the existing Trail Difficulty Rating of each trail under the International Mountain Bicycling Association’s Trail Difficulty Rating System.

Environmental and Cultural Heritage Assessments and associated approvals have been undertaken ahead of the works, and we will be working closely with an Ecologist to minimise any impacts to our local wildlife.

Maintenance is expected to commence in June, with the project expected to take approximately 4 months to complete, dependent on weather conditions.

The trails will be upgraded one at a time, and will be closed to the public with signage at either end. The community is reminded not to access any closed trails for their safety.

All fire trails will remain open for walking and cycling during the maintenance period.

This project is being co-funded by NSW Crown Lands under the Crown Reserves Improvement Fund, AlburyCity and Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers.
