Lost and Found
Gently climb up the bottom of Third of the Hill in this weavy trail.
Great for beginners looking to step things up, this short flowy ride links to the bottom section of Mercury Street and the end of Lost and Found.

A rocking, twisting trail with a great link to the start of Mercury Street.
Long, fast, and downhill, this trail has tabletop jumps and fast corners for a challenging ride.

Slippery When Dry
One of the first sections of trail constructed. It contains challenging rock gardens, fast corners, fun jumps, and one Black Diamond log ride shortly before you descend to the Camel Farm.
Make the most of rollers which you can pump, manual, or link up and double if your speed allows. It continues into Alchemy after the gradient flattens out.
A little bit of Whistler-inspired magic, Lazarus features lighting fast berms, tabletops and step-downs. At the end, you can hook onto Alchemy or join the last section of Loco En El Coco.
This trail is flat, twisty, and loose. Look out for the wall ride halfway down and the tabletop to finish.
Lube Me Up
This new climb takes you from Metasoma all the way to the very top of the hill and the start of Scorpion trail — lookout for those tight corners.
Whip around wooden berms — or should we say, wall rides — and finish grinning ear-to-ear.

This handy link runs from the end of Scorpion and joins with Metasoma for those looking to do it all again or link with an easier ride at Mt Gunjin.
Difficult — Black
For the ultimate adrenalin rush, advanced riders can experience our legendary trails. These aren’t for the faint-hearted.
This highly-advanced trail with large jumps and non-rollable drop offs. Take it on, if you’re skilled enough.
A one way, downhill stint that starts tight and slow before a small drop off leads to some smooth berms. Ramp up your speed for a series of tabletops and small jumps, then nail a log ride before an even faster berm launches you in the first of the ladder drops.
Loco en el Coco
Test your skills with two large drop offs, good flow, and a couple of ramps that give you the option to shoot through some corners, with a large wall ride to finish. Trail style turns bike park style with two largish doubles into a 90, then 180-degree berm followed by another two large camelbak doubles. There are more rollers and ramps before the trail merges back to blue where the gradient flattens out.
Riding the trails
Here’s what you need to know.
Bikes can be hired locally from Rock and Roll Mountain Biking (based at the Camelfarm), Munda Biddi Bike Hire (Helena Valley), and Kalamunda Cycles (in town). All offer short or long-term rentals and can normally undertake emergency repairs onsite if needed. Otherwise, feel free to get in touch with any of our other bike shop sponsors who could assist with demo bikes.

Sunscreen, Knee and arm guards, decent lights (for night rides) are also recommended. Your safety is your own responsibility — always ride within your skillsets.
When riding our trails, be respectful of the environment and other riders. Please don’t leave any rubbish behind and don’t intentionally damage the track. Most importantly, encourage one another if things get tough on a challenging ride.
