Where it all started; the cycling trails! 16 years ago, a few trails were cut into the valley purely for cycling. This would be the beginning of the Giba Gorge we know today. With trails ranging from simple dirt road, to technical single track; there is a trail for everyone! Local legend, Deklan Davies, spends most of his free time tearing up the trails at Giba! We asked him to give us a guide to the best cycling trails in the park. We hope this helps you decide which trails to include in your next cycling adventure at Giba Gorge!
Giba gorge is a mountain bike/hiking park with a huge variety of trails from beginner trails to trails that satisfy a hard Enduro or downhill rider. Giba gorge has come a far way in upgrading the trails and accommodating all riders.
Gravity is possibly the most well known trail at Giba Gorge with its huge berms that flow from side to side which drop into the parks biggest “jumpline”. A “jumpline” is a sequences of jumps one after the other. The most well known jump in the park called “nutted” is situated on this trail.
Allen’s Alley is a park favourite, it’s a short trail that fast riders can stomp in about a minute. Beware of the rocks and roots that may come flying towards you as you speed down this trail!
