  • Shared Use Tracks

    The City of Hobart is developing a mountain bike network plan to improve riding experiences on the the lower slopes of kunanyi / Mt Wellington.

    People may prefer to share tracks and trails with their own user group (for example, walkers with other walkers , mountain bikers with other mountain bikers) but we want to hear from you.

    This survey will ask which activity you identify with most strongly - as a mountain bike rider, walker or runner - and will then take you through a series of questions that will:

    • help inform the development of our mountain bike network plan;
    • improve mountain biking experiences on our track network;
    • take into consideration the experiences of other users.

    We have provided a number of maps that show how many of our tracks are available for riders, walkers and runners. Fire trails, although they play an important role in our track network, were built for emergency and operational reasons and so have not been shown on these maps.

    We encourage you to provide general comments at the end of the survey.

    Note: Any new track developments are dependent on a number of factors including cultural and natural value assessments and available funding.


  • Calling for community responses

    12 months ago

    The City of Hobart is exploring new ways of improving the riding experience for mountain bike riders in the lower foothills of kunanyi/Mt Wellington.

    We have already embarked on the Missing Link project, enlisting the aid of local mountain bike riders to build three new tracks to international biking standards - the ‘Drops’, and two yet-to-be named tracks in the vicinity of Bracken Lane.

    To take riding experiences on the mountain to the next level we want to understand how the existing track network is being used, the type of riding experiences you are having now and what you'd like to see in the future.

    Your feedback will help us develop a mountain bike network plan for the lower foothills of kunanyi/Mt Wellington that will identify projects that can be implemented as funding becomes available.

    By taking this survey you can help shape the future of mountain biking on kunanyi/Mt Wellington.

    The scope of this project is restricted to a particular area. The MAP provided highlights tracks within the existing network that are currently under review.
