Six Foot Track Trail For Mountain Biking

The 3rd most popular mountain bike trail in Australia.

In the Blue Mountains National Park, the Six Foot Track Trail is a 45 kilometer route over undulating terrain. The starting point is at the picnic ground where the Six Foot Track crosses Jenolon Caves Rd. Follow the red arrows to the Megalong Valley Rd, which is appr. 2-3 hours, then follow the road to Blackheath which is another 1.5 hours. Note that this mountain bike ride begins on fire roads which are very slippy especially after dry weather. Also, there are two main downhills on the way to Coxes river after which point the trail goes to single track . It then crosses a very narrow suspension bridge and climbs to Megalong Valley Rd. If the suspension bridge is too scary, you can go through the river but watch out for the Blue Mountain Croc!

Overall, Six Foot Track Trail is the 3rd most popular mountain bike trail of all 30 mountain biking rides in Australia.
