10+ k's of XC trails. Most are easy hardpack in a sparse eucalypt forest. The open nature of the trails make it an excellent race course when races are held here due to loads of passing opportunities.
There are several decent switchback climbs which are followed by fast, flowing descents with some rocky sections.
Common Rd, Dungog. Drive the end of common rd and turn left onto the dirt road next to the bus depot. Parking is about 100 metres up the dirt road either beside the road itself or up the fireroad next to the bus depot. Trails start right there with "Inny and Outy" a good kilometre warm up before crossing the dirt road into the clearing where the trail head sign is seen a little way up the grass hill.
Follow the orange signage to do the most common loop. Mostly easy with a few short medium skill sections.

The AMB 100 Marathon. A singletrack marathon. At Stromlo Forest Park.
It's different, because it's lap-based. It's tough, because it's packed with singletracks.It's hard, because you'll race almost all the trails of Stromlo Forest Park on a giant monster circuit.
All that makes it one of the most demanding mountain bike maratahons on the Aussie MTB endurance calendar. The sweeping climbs, rocky descents and flowying trails at Stromlo, however, also mean that it gets you into a rythm that makes it one of the most fun and rewarding races you'll ever do.
About the raceIt features the longest racing circuit possible at the popular MTB park and for the classic marathon challenge participants will have to complete three laps of the 30km race course, which links together almost all of the trail sections at Stromlo. A mass race start at 8am will also offer a pairs category and one and two lap options. By then the growing number of marathon addicts will have completed almost a third of their race - the five-lap AMB 100 Miler kicks off at 5am with views of a glorious sunrise over the Capital.
Mike Blewitt, experienced marathon racer and editor of the Australian MTB Magazine, the event's headlinie sponsor, says of the race:
Racing at Stromlo is an immense challenge, and as patrons of the AMB 100 Marathon, we are excited to present this event for Australian Mountain Bikers. The trails and terrain at Stromlo always determine a deserving winner, and with the variety of challenges on offer from a one lap race to the 100 miler, and with paired racing options, there is something for everyone out there. Ive raced on every continent except the big frozen one, but the trails and racing I have experienced at Mt Stromlo have always left me both exhausted and exhilarated. This will be one of the toughest races on the Australian calendar, yet the variety of events and location means it is accessible to many.
In a first, the JetBlack 24 Hour mountain bike endurance race in 2016 will be held at James Estate Winery in the Upper Hunter Valley about 3.5 hours from Sydney and 2 hours inland from Newcastle.
