Arklow Adaptive Trail now open

This latest trail through the Arklow Forest in the South West has been completed as part of the Collie Adventure Trails initiative.  It is designed and rated to accommodate riders of varying levels of ability, including those who use hand cycles.

The trail consists of a 9.5km loop that connects to the Munda Biddi Trail and provides access to Collie. It is a mix of modern flow trail and old forestry tracks.

It forms part of the McGowan Government’s $10 million Collie Adventure Trails initiative to establish Collie as a premier trail adventure town, with 100km of high-quality mountain bike trails between Wellington National Park and the town of Collie.

Environment and Disability Services Minister Stephen Dawson said projects like the recently completed Arklow Adaptive Trail were giving people with different abilities the opportunity to experience the forest and connect with the natural environment while enjoying a challenging ride.
