MT BAKEWELL & MT BROWN, YORK WA.
Only 80 minutes’ drive from Perth CBD and with one of the highest peaks near the city at 240m of vertical elevation, this location is spectacular and perfect for mountian biking and hiking, with steep and moderate slopes, varied terrain, good soil types and bush. The mountains are minutes from town and can reached by bike.
The Mt Bakewell trail project could include multiple descending trails with a climb trails.
An environmental survey was undertaken by a contractor and funded by WTA in 2020
Work is underway by the Shire of York to progress and recognise the existing popular trails on Mt Brown which are regularly used for MTB events. The trails will likely include a range of Cross Country and Gravity options for all levels of riders.
