    Hangingrock mountain ride

    After picking up your bike from us at Katoomba YHA, it’s a short train ride to Blackheath. If you’re fit and want an extended adventure, you can ride to Blackheath via the GBMT trail. It adds another 15km to your adventure….and is recommended. Another option is adding the easy but amazing Anvil Rock ride, which adds another 17km to your ride. When you’re finished, you return back to Katoomba YHA to meet, share your stories and drop off your bikes.

    With scenic valley views across the Grose Valley and crisp mountain air, this ride follows a rough fire trail along the ridgeline to the spectacular Baltzers Lookout at Hanging Rock. Unlike other lookouts in the mountains, there is no safety fence here to separate you from one particularly large drop! Expect some VERTIGO!

    This is your typical "out and back” Blue Mountains ride – the easy navigation and the short distance make it an ideal ride for less experienced cyclists looking to clock up some time on the dirt and get closer to nature.

    That’s not to say more experienced cyclists won’t enjoy it… the flowing trails will bring a smile to any rider’s dial, and there are also plenty of water bars to let you get some air time. And besides, the views are more than enough to keep everybody happy anyway!

    There are a few short climbs, but they are all easily walked if you need to. If you are looking for a longer ride, you can extend this ride to include a trip to Anvil Rock and take in even more breathtaking views.
