7 Wondrous mountain biking trails in Margaret River

Margaret River WEATHER

Ready to get out into the rugged bushland and explore Western Australia by mountain bike?

Margaret River is fast becoming a West Australian mountain bike track hub with thousands of mountain bike enthusiasts hitting the track every year.

In fact, did you know almost 120,000 mountain bikes are purchased every year in Western Australia – with 10% of West Australians owning a mountain bike?

The numbers are quite staggering.

However, there’s no surprise once you get off-road and experience mountain bike riding yourself. You could even make a whole trip out of it with a bikepacking adventure in the southwest of WA.

So what are you waiting for – load up your bike, jump in the car and take a road trip down south to Margaret River.

Taking a drive down to the Margaret River region allows you to experience Margaret River and the beautiful lush landscapes roadside. However, riding one of the Margaret River mountain biking trails allow you to experience Margaret River up close, through thriving forests and rugged mountains – providing a unique and wondrous experience.

Perfect for both mountain biking and bushwalking, the Wadandi Track in Margaret River takes you down a ~23km path from Cowaramup to Witchcliffe, just south of Margaret River. The track includes a combination of farmland and vineyards on what was previously known as the “Rails to Trails” path.

And now for a small slice of history.

The track showcases the heritage of the former Busselton to Flinders Bay Railway which was built back in the 1880s. While most of the rail line was salvaged, you’ll still get a glimpse of the track during your mountain bike hiking adventure.
