TYPE OF TRAILS

Based on the International Mountain Bike Association (IMBA) grading for trail difficulty, most of the trails in the network are rated Blue Square (intermediate). In addition there are several Green Circle (easy) trails and harder Black Diamond (difficult) trails.


RIDING THE TRAILS

Most of the trails are one directional, as indicated on the maps which can be downloaded above or at the map/downloads tab. Please obey these directions for your safety and enjoyment.

There are 4 car parks in the network (see below). It is possible to shuttle the trail to the NE of Mount Gunjin (Judderbars, Lazarus & Loco en el Coco) by using the unsealed Gunjin Rd.



THE TRAILS

Horny Devil

A fast flowing trail, marked with a pair of Devil's Horns (trees) at its start. The first few corners are a bit tight but it just gets faster and faster until eventually spitting you out at the Black Stump car park.

Slippery When Dry

This is one of the first sections of trail to be constructed and contains many challenging rock gardens, fast corners, fun jumps and one Black Diamond log ride shortly before you descend to the Camel Farm.

Camel Farm Link

This two way green (easy) trail provides a fast and fun link between the Black Stump car park and the Camel Farm. A great little short cut if you don't have the time nor energy to tackle Slippery When Dry.

Shake, Rattle n Roll skills loop

This 800m long interpretive beginner skills loop is a great place to warm up or hone your skills.

Joeys Line

This section of trail named after Canadian trail builder Joey Klein who ran a tail workshop here. A tricky rocky climb to get the legs warmed up.

Dugite

A snaking trail with one small jump and lots of fast corners.

Camakazi

A real favourite; a predominantly downhill (heading east) trail with berm after berm, some small jumps and a few rocks to keep in interesting.

X-Files

Linking trail, where the Kalamunda Circuit leaves the Munda Biddi. Named after the prison crew who constructed this section of trail who were supervised by Officer Scully and went missing afterwards...

FJ

A flattish section of the Kalamunda Circuit that weaves around and passes by an old burnt out Holden FJ

Highway to Dell

A twisty climb up through the pines which takes you gradually to the Dell. So gentle that it doesn't even feel like a hill.

Metasoma

A fun, tight downhill trail that leads from the top of Highway to Dell down towards Scorpion trail.

Lancaster

A one way, Black Diamond (hard) downhill trail from the power lines near the Dell back. This trail starts tight and slow before a small drop off leads you in to a couple of nice berms that ramp up your speed for a series of table tops and small jumps. Balance along a log before an even faster berm launches you in the the first of the ladder drops. 

Lube Me Up

This new climb takes you from Metasoma all the way to the very top of the hill and the start of Scorpion trail - beware the tight corners.

Scorpion

An old favourite that has been given a recent new lease of life with an extension back up the hill to make it longer and the addition of several wood lined berms - or should we say wall rides. The speed you can rip around these will leave you grinning ear to ear.

Up Up And Away

Steady climb from the Farrell Grove car park and picnic area to the top of Scorpion Trail. Not as steep and tight as Lube Me Up.

Brand New Second Hand

A reclaimed an old trail, turned around. This gentle climb, which takes you as far as Gunjin Rd, is the first part of the long drag back up to Gunjin.

Rocky Balboa

A technical climb with many hairpin corners and exposed rocks to catch you out - a good challenge to take the mind off the screaming legs.
Starts off of the Munda Biddi trail and merges with Drago at the 4 way junction where you either take Mother-in-Law to the top of Gunjin, or continue on Rocky Balboa to take either Mercury St or Luvin Shovels which head back towards the Dell.

Mercury St

A long, fast and fun downhill from the top of Rocky Balboa all the way to the Dell. There are many table top jumps, fast corners and one challenging log ride. The log ride has a narrow up ramp and either a small jump off or a roll (to the right).

Luvin Shovels

THIS IS AN ADVANCED TRAIL WITH LARGE JUMPS AND UN ROLL-ABLE DROP OFFS. EXPERIENCED RIDERS ONLY.

Drago

Like Dolph Lundgren's character, Ivan Drago, in Rocky III this climb is not as hard as Rocky Balboa. In fact its a simple non technical climb for those who want to cruise back to the top to do it all again. Continuing on from Brand New Second Hand it merges with Rocky near to the power lines.

NB. The last part of Rocky Balboa, after the merge, now takes you to Mercury St only. If you want to ride Muffin Tops you must take Mother-in-law to the top of Gunjin and then Goldilocks.

Mother-in-law

Like the mother-in-law, this final part of the climb to Gunjin is going to be hard work. Try not to bite your tongue though, just think you could be climbing the pea gravel road to the left.

Goldilocks

This flow trail might be short but it packs a lot of fun in. Descending from the west side of the clearing at the top of Gunjin it takes you to the start of Muffin Tops or Three Bears.

Three Bears

This is section of trail has now been switched to a one way descent. There are three bears (tabletops) and when linked in with Goldilocks and then continuing on to Mercury St it  makes a 4th long descent off of Gunjin.

Muffin Tops

The fastest downhill blast around. Take your hands off the brakes and enjoy the ride. There are several table top jumps to add to the fun!

Judderbars

There are many rollers on the trail which you pump, manual or link up and double if your speed allows. Access this trail by taking the right fork off of the blue line at the top of Gunjin. It joins up with Lazarus at the power lines and continues in to Alchemy after Loco joins and when the gradient flattens out.

Lazarus

Loco's little brother is a great training ground for those who like it technical. Littered with rock gardens, rock drops, ramps and ladder drops and tricky lines. This trail also starts at the top of Gunjin and is the second blue trail off to the right. It merges with Judderbars before the power lines by taking the small ramp to the right. If you want to go black and a little Loco, then take the larger ramp to the left which will take you to the jump park style doubles.

Loco en el Coco

Starting at the top of Mt Gunjin and descending North towards Mundaring Weir Rd, this Black Diamond run will test your skills with two large drop offs, good flow, a couple of ramps that give you the option to shoot through some corners and a large wall ride to finish.
Loco crosses the power lines and remains rather black. The trail style turns moderately bike park style with two largish doubles into a 90, then 180 degree berm followed by another two large camelbak doubles to put a smile on your dial. There are more rollers and ramps before the trail merges back to blue where the gradient flattens out.

THIS IS AN ADVANCED TRAIL WITH LARGE JUMPS AND UN ROLL-ABLE DROP OFFS. EXPERIENCED RIDERS ONLY.

Alchemy

After the three trails above have merged we have turned iron (well semi-ferrous pea gravel) in to gold. This trail is flat, twisty and loose. Look out for the wall ride half way down and the table top to finish. At the end take Brand New Second Hand to head back up to Gunjin or the short link to the shuttle bay on Gunjin Rd and towards the Dell.

Munda Biddi

The Munda Biddi trail is a long distance offroad touring trail that runs from Mundaring to Albany (1000km).A section of the Munda Biddi passes through the centre of the Kalamunda Trails and is a useful "spine" to the network.
The Munda Biddi Touring Route is a diversion from the main Munda Biddi trail. It closely follows Horny Devil, crossing it several times, and can be used as an easy way to get around the Kalamunda Trails network.

The Munda Biddi is marked with the distinctive yellow markers on a blue or green  background.

Pump Track

Constructed in September 2012, the Black Stump Pump track is an outstanding facility suitable for riders of all ages and abilities. Pump tracks are great fun for riders of all abilities and a great introduction to mountain biking.

 

PARKING AREAS

Calamunnda Camel Farm

A safe place to leave your car and the largest car park in the are. The mountain bike friendly cafe also does camel rides. The food here is great and the scones and camel toe biscuits are highly recommended.
They also carry a few bike spares should you forget/break anything.

Farrell Grove car park and picnic area

Large DPaW managed car park off of Mundaring Weir Rd. There are lots of picnic tables and some toilets here. Great place to park if you want to ride the trails around Scorpion or Gunjin, especially if the Dell is full.

Black Stump car park

A good place to park at the western end of the trails network. There is a trailhead map and noticeboard.
Cross Mundaring Weir Rd to the north side and pick up the trail from here. After 50m you will have a choice of the longer, harder Blue rated "Slippery When Dry" trail or the easier Green rated trail.

The Dell

One of the busiest and smaller car parks. It has great trail access, toilets and several picnic areas in beautiful bush surroundings.
