Ready to shred? If you love to throw the bikes on the car and get the kids knee-deep in some outdoor action, you’ve come to the right place for Mountain Bike Trails in Perth. MTB (that stands for mountain biking, for those in the know) in Perth is HUGE! Popular events like the WA Gravity Enduro and the Cape to Cape are among Australia’s largest mountain bike comps. The sport is awesome fun for kiddos to get into. And once you are kitted out with a bike and safety gear, it’s a pretty cheap day out too. 

If the kids love a pump track and want to convert their mad skills to the real thing, head to a MTB trail in Perth. The Perth Hills are the best place to head to for a quality mounting bike trail. See our guide to the best MTB trails in Perth to take your little sprockets here:


Lake Leschenaultia MTB Trails, Chidlow

So PERFECT for kids wanting to give MTB a try and build their confidence. The Railway Run is the best dedicated MTB track to start on for kids. The easy, flat 700m trail follows the old miniature rail line. Perfect for beginners and children. The kids will love to explore the old railway station too!

Find Lake Leschenaultia in Chidlow, east of Mundaring.


Kalamunda Trails

Skill Level – Easy to Extreme Trails

The 40km Kalamunda network of MTB trails is WA’s largest and busiest. The one

-way mountain bike trails are well signposted. Most of the easy trails start from the Calamunda Camel Farm hub, where there is also a café. At the Black Stump area, you’ll also find a pump track.

Here is the KMBC’s suggested loop for kids and beginners.

Find Calamunda Camel Farm at 361 Pauls Valley Road, Kalamunda


The Goat Farm, Greenmount

Skill Level – Easy to Difficult 

This designated mountain bike park is found on the scarp of the Perth Hills (in between Midland and Mundaring). There’s a dedicated skills park and easy trails you can ride with kids. The Goat Farm’s steep trails are very challenging… some might say it’s best suited to mountain goats! Experienced riders are sure to catch some air at the Goat Farm and it’s a heap of fun. The park has also been designed to cater for downhill and cross-country riders.

Find the Goat Farm just off Great Eastern Highway, onto Greenmount Rise, Greenmount.

Other Mountain bike trails in the Perth metro area worth checking  out… 

Munda Bidi, Mundaring

This iconic,1,000km off-road trail begins in Mundaring, very close to the Sculpture playground. Experienced riders can head all the way down to Albany, but you can cut down the rides into much smaller bites too. Try a family ride from Mundaring Weir to Mundaring Weir, or from Mundaring Weir to the Kalamunda Trails, which the Munda Bidi passes through.


Langford Park, Jarrahdale

Skill Level – Easy to Moderate Trails

Here’s another fun MTB trail in the Perth Hills…. The pea gravel tracks at Langford Park are challenging. This spot deep in the forest is perfect for winter riding, as wet tracks allow for grippier and faster trails. 


Forsyths Mill, Sawyers Valley

Skill Level – Intermediate Trail

This short-ish XC style loop takes in logs and jumps over a 5km trail. Found just off Great Eastern Highway, it’s not too far from Lake Leschenaultia. There is also a much shorter beginners loop here too.

Find Forsyths Mill on Gorrie Road, Sawyers Valley


So whatever your skill level, there’s bound to be an MTB trail in Perth that matches it. And remember to leave no trace – take everything with you that you brought along and look after the beautiful bush. Happy mountain biking!
