    Love this trail. Spent 2 whole days out there covering as much as I could fit in. I split my rides into 2 sections and by the end of day 2, I couldn't wait to come back. It's everything people say it is and a heap more. A must ride

    Excellent trail. Only rode 11km of the supposed 40km but really good fun. Lots of tight left to rights and not too much climbing required. Track was pretty muddy. Not unridable, but certainly muddy. Stay away if you don't wanna get your fancy rig dirty. I'm definitely going back!

    Allowing for the logging and the new road, Sparrow Hill is a sensational ride. Lots of relatively smooth flowing single trails traversing the hills. With very few steep climbs, its a pleassure to explore the many trails with some speed. A must for every MTB enthusiast.

    A great network of fast singletrack(s) consisting of multiple loops, rock gardens, berms, small jumps, log balances, allowing for many hours of excellent riding. Most of it is undulating sweeping single track that will suck up whatever you have to throw at it. The courses have something for everyone: very fast sections such as Bobsled and Heavy Cow, and some more technical rock gardens such as Sparrow Loop.
    It's a pleasure to ride. The makers have gone with the contours rather than against them, meaning you can power through with encountering any seriously arduous inclines. Located in a pine plantation the drainage is good and the track is mostly shaded, making it great all year round. You can't ride MTB in Canberra without checking out this course.
