Cycling on tracks and trails is a great way to experience the remarkable diversity of nature and magnificent landscapes found in parks.
There are literally thousands of kilometres of management trails open to cyclists criss-crossing parks in NSW. For the adventurous, exhilarating mountain bike single-track and multi-track experiences are available in certain national parks. For more information on cycling opportunities in the national parks of NSW go to our cycling home page. Please take time to find out about some simple Rules of the trail and safety when cycling in parks before setting out.
Cycling on roads and trails is a great way to experience the remarkable diversity and beauty of Murramarang National Park. Several trails lead off the Princes Highway but you can avoid the highway by beginning your ride from the villages of Kioloa, Depot Beach, Durras or Long Beach.
In the northern section of the park, a suggested loop from Kioloa is via Dangerboard, South Arm and Bucks Roads, returning to Kioloa on Dangerboard Road. Or for the more adventurous try the loop over Durras Mountain via Mountain Road and the Old Coast Road.
In the south, from Long Beach, you could enter the park from the end of Sea Acres Drive to access a network of unsealed roads that lead all the way to South Durras. There are several possible loops. The Old Coast Road in the southern part of the park would have to be one of the most scenic anywhere, traversing tall eucalypt forests with ancient burrawang palms covering the forest floor, and with cooling ocean breezes, not to mention a few very steep hills.
