Mountain Biking West MacDonnell MTB Track

*****   Add a review
#1 of 4 mountain bike trails in Northern Territory
#5,715 in the world

Formerly dubbed the Hell Line, the West Macs Track is a 15 km mountain bike track. It starts 5 km from the centre of town, and comes out 800 m from the northern Stuart Highway, about 8 km from the centre of town.

The riding on the West Macs track requires an intermediate skill-level, and reasonable fitness. There are no turn-offs or other mountain bike tracks intersecting this track, so make sure you bring enough water to last the ride.

Getting there
Ride north out of town along the Stuart Highway. Turn left onto Smith St and continue for 1.8 km. Turn left onto Lovegrove Dr and turn right as soon as you cross the railway line. Follow 4WD track that runs parallel to the railway line for about 1 km, until you see a green post with a mountain bike sign on it, on your left, just before you reach the motorbike tracks. (This is the Railway Track.) Follow the mountain bike signs on the Railway Track for about 3 km, until you reach a fork in the track. Take the right hand track and follow it to a gate (100 metres). This is the West Macs Track trail head. The sign marking this trail head has a map of the route.

    Really nice trails, but large quantities of water in excess of 2-3 litres is a requirement. Nice trails, with lots of grip, though reasonably dusty. Sand/Fat bikes are not required but are helpful. Don't go looking for a serious downhill trails, the average is a xc course with some obstacles, the hardest being the occasional rock garden.
    Love the trails, especially the event every Easter; Easter in the Alice
