23 Nov Murray Valley trails officially opened
The 35-kilometre network of new mountain bike trails was officially opened in Lane Poole Reserve recently as part of the $8.4 million Dwellingup Adventure Trails project.
The trails were funded by the Murray Valley Shire and the Federal and State Governments with Shire President CR David Bolt, Noongar elder Maitland Hill, Minister Stephen Dawson MLC and Senator Matt O’Sullivan all there to cut the ribbon.
The new Murray Valley network includes traditional cross-country trails through to all-mountain descents into the river valley and includes a range of trails that are suitable for beginners to advanced riders. It also features several trails with Adaptive ratings from partly accessible to mostly accessible.
The Murray Valley mountain bike trails are just a ten minute drive out of the Dwellingup town centre, where the first stage of the new Shire of Murray trail and visitor centre has opened. If you are looking for information prior to riding, then definitely drop into the centre where there are plenty of helpful brochures, displays and the friendly staff will be able to answer your trail questions. A cafe and bike shop will soon open in the centre, where a bike wash, tool stand and toilets are already available along with showers for a quick wash down after a day of riding.
