The mountain biking cousin of the 1000km long Bibbulmun Track, the 1050km Munda Biddi Trail runs between Mundaring in the Perth Hills and Albany on the south coast. Taking in forests, old rail trails, farmland, cosy towns and a section of the coastline, this is a great (and fast) way of exploring the South West.
What Is It?
The 1050km trail was completed in 2013 and is the longest continuous off-road cycling trail in the world. Perfectly setup for bike packing and day trips, you’ll find yourself on a mix of single track, fire trails, abandoned rail formations and backcountry roads as you traverse a variety of landscapes over the length of the trail. Passing through plenty of towns along the way, you can recharge, refuel and enjoy some well-earned comforts after a long day of riding. Between towns where the distances are too long to travel in one day, you’ll find well equipped campsites with a three-sided shelter, water tanks, toilet and undercover bike parking.
Where Is It?
Starting at Sculpture Park in Mundaring, the trail takes you through the forests of the Darling Scarp as you head south towards the towns of Jarrahdale and Dwellingup. From there you ride towards Collie through what’s left of the northern Jarrah forests and then you hit the heartland of the South West. Exploring the farmland and wineries of the Ferguson Valley, you reach Boyanup, Donnybrook, Jarrahwood and then Nannup, each providing a place to rest and refuel. Entering Karri country, you pass through peaceful Donnelly River Village, Manjimup, Quinninup, Pemberton and Northcliffe. From here you reach the slightly wilder side of the Munda Biddi with longer stretches between the towns of Walpole, Denmark and your final destination, Albany as you reach the fresh air of the coast.
