Oaks Fire Trail, Woodford to Glenbrook

For an invigorating ride or walk that will work your muscles and clear your head, try the Woodford Oaks trail in Blue Mountains National Park. The track leads from Woodford to Glenbrook and makes a great day out in the mountains for friends or family looking for heart pumping adventure and fresh mountain air.

Distance:
27km (one-way)

Elevation/Climb:
(Woodford to Glenbrook) 304m

Difficulty:
Medium difficulty

Time suggested:
1-2 hours either way
Allow 3.5 hours either way to include rest stops and getting to/from railway stations

The trail:

The trail consists of a nice downhill run for the first 2km and then undulates to the midway point. There are three challenging climbs for the average rider and the midway point at the helipad is a nice open spot to take a break. From there it's all downhill to the bottom gate. At the gate you'll have the choice to stay on the dirt road and ride to other destinations in the National Park such as Euroka Clearing or Red Hands Cave, or take the single track which leads all the way to the causeway carpark. A short ride down the road will bring you to the causeway and you can finish with a challenging climb to the National Park entrance and carpark. Alternatively you might have a support team to pick you up at the causeway carpark.
