Mountain Biking in Manjimup

Our region offers beautiful mountain bike tracks through the majestic trees and exciting landscape. Combine the Shire of Manjimup's vast areas of unspoiled forests and bushland, gentle terrain, and year-round cycling weather, and you have the ideal setting for an off-road cycle trail. Check out the map of cycling paths in and around Manjimup here.

Deanmill Heritage Trail

The former Manjimup – Deanmill Tramway forms part of the Munda Biddi Trail. In 1912, the tramway linked the sawmill supplying timber sleepers for the construction of the Transcontinental Railway, to Manjimup. The Deanmill settlement was named after the mill's first manager, Mr Alfred Dean. Having closed as an operating tramway in 1966, the reserve has been allowed to regrow and forms a major green corridor on the western side of Manjimup. This trail is also used by walkers for the 11km return walk from Manjimup.

Munda Biddi Trail

The Munda Biddi Trail (which means path through the forest in the Noongar Aboriginal language) is fast becoming a world-class nature-based off-road cycling experience. The Trail runs for 1000km from Mundaring to Albany and was purpose built for off-road cyclists. The full 1000km was officially opened on 28 April 2013. The trail passes through each major town in the Shire, meaning you can travel light on this section of the track and enjoy the hospitality of the region. Find out more about the Munda Biddi Trail here.

Northcliffe Federation and Forest Park Trails

Within the town site of Northcliffe, these two dual use trails are a pleasant ride for cyclists of any ability. Federation Trail is 600m and located in the Jubilee Park, which also comprises the Pioneer Museum and a playground. The Forest Park Trail is 7.7km and is located behind the Northcliffe Visitor Centre. The Forest Park is also a beautiful spot for a picnic, with barbecue facilities.

Pemberton Mountain Bike Park

Pemberton Mountain Bike Park, featuring over 25 kilometres of mountain bike tracks and dual use trails in the Pemberton Forest Park, has been recognised as a national mountain biking hub. Trails are well marked (following the international mountain bike signage conventions) and cater for entry level through to advanced riders. The mountain bike park is open to all.
