The Western Sydney Parklands is an ideal place to explore and get the heart-rate up! The beautiful bushland surrounds and convenient paths, open areas and facilities, combine to make it one of Sydney’s most appealing settings for active pursuits.
Cycling & Walking
The Parklands is a beautiful place to walk or cycle. There are several walking loops, as marked on the Parklands Track map, as well as walking paths at areas such as Plough and Harrow, and Lizard Log.
Alternatively, you can find your closest walking and cycling trail in the Parklands on the RMS Cycleway Finder website.
See What’s On for information about cycling events in the Parklands.
Mountain Bike Riding
Wylde Mountain Bike Trail is open daily sunset to sunrise, weather permitting, and is free of charge to ride. Winner of the 2015 Premier’s People’s Choice Awards in Landscape and Architecture, and the NSW Australian Institute of Landscape Architects Design Award, the trail caters for intermediate, competent and advanced standard mountain bike riders.
Updates about the open status of Wylde MTB Trail are posted to the Parklands Facebook page.
