Lithgow Mountain Bike Strategy
Plans for a mountain bike boost in Lithgow

Lithgow City Council is considering a new draft Mountain Bike Trails Strategy that would transform Hassans Wall Reserve in the Central Tablelands of New South Wales into an attractive mountain biking destination. 

The draft strategy has been prepared by Rocky Trail Destination and details the requirements and costs of developing three purpose-built mountain biking trails that are suited to a broad scale of mountain biking.

The plan focuses on providing an entry level alternative for beginner to intermediate riders, enabling the Lithgow community to reap the benefits of the booming popularity of mountain biking.

Similar trails, such as the Burramoko Ridge (Hanging Rock), have proved to be a popular riding destination for locals and visitors in the nearby Blue Mountains.

Rocky Trail Destination is a tourism consultant with experience supporting government agencies to grow tourism, economic development and active recreation in regional areas. 

Lithgow City Council is now inviting members of the community to have their say on the draft strategy.
