NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES TO WYLDE MOUNTAIN BIKE TRAIL

Please note that the normal trail network entry point will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED from 23 September 2020, weather permitting, due to major pipeline works by Sydney Water.

Vehicle access to the Wylde MTB facility car park will remain as normal.

The pipeline works and later road construction for the new Wylde MTB facility will result in the Gunbarrel Highway being closed to riders from Wednesday 23 September, weather permitting.  An alternative entry to the trails will be signposted and provide access via a short section of the Kids Loop.   

During the early period of this work, children and riders will not be able to complete the Kids Loop which will be TEMPORARILY CLOSED.  We recommend beginner riders practise on the pump and jump tracks. More adventurous children can ride on all other trails.

Western Sydney Parklands will reopen a shortened version of the Kids Loop once a diversion trail is constructed in the near future.

We will keep riders updated in above status and via the Wylde Facebook group.

Thank you for your patience while these works are underway. The Trust is working to minimise disruption to riders as much as possible during this time.

Join our Wylde Facebook Group to discuss all things Wylde!
