Ben Lomond Descent
The ride that we are most famous for….. and justifiably so ...is mostly downhill (sorry, yes that was mostly!) so hold on and enjoy the ride. Mountain Biking how it used to be, adventure riding along with fantastic views of the rugged Ben Lomond National Park.
Our local guides will take you on one of the ultimate mountain bike descents possible in Tasmania with a total drop of 1050 vertical metres. Starting in the alpine Ski Village at 1450m, this awesome trip takes you down the spectacular Jacobs Ladder road before connecting to old four wheel drive tracks through the Eucaplypt forests. There is also a fantastic single-track section, part of the annual Ben Lomond Descent multi-sport race. We then continue on fire trails and other single tracks to our finishing point on the Blessington Road at 400m.
No prior experience required, you just need to be able to ride a bike. We will tailor the ride to suit you. We can offer extra technical sections for those with a more extensive MTB background.
