MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAILS:
Mountain Splendour has purpose built single track and a skills park available free for guests staying at the resort. These trails link in with the Valley wide network of Cathkin Trails (permits required).
For guests not staying with us, you are welcome to ride our trails, but are required to have a Cathkin Trail permit – which can be purchased at our cycle shop.
Unfortunately the bridges on the Cathkin Trail are in the process of being repaired after the December rains and the TRAILS ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED.
Our local team of Development Riders are always on hand to offer their services as competent and knowledgeable guides. As many of these riders are employed we do need at least 24 hours to contact a guide and they are not always available. Sometimes they are working and sometimes they are off racing!!!
