The Snowy Mountains region is iconic and fast becoming renowned as a world-class destination for mountain biking and trail enthusiasts. Over the past few years, 100km of trails have been developed, with more being planned. This network of trails in and around Jindabyne caters to all levels of a diverse group of trail users.
Integral to the success of the trail network is maintenance up-keep as well as trail advocates. A small group of community members, volunteers and keen trail users have formed to ensure the trail network is championed, adequately maintained and improved upon, not only for the visitors to the region, but the local community. This custodian group is known as the
JINDABYNE TRAIL STEWARDSHIP.
The maintenance and restoration of our trails is an ongoing and vital undertaking. This will be achieved using proven principles of trail design and maintenance to minimise impact, erosion and trail degradation, utilising dedicated community volunteers, backed and trained by the skills of professional trail builders.
It is important that our trails function as a cohesive network, with signage and trail
connections that create an enormously rich trail experience.
The JINDABYNE TRAIL STEWARDSHIP is a self-sustaining, non-profit group with the key aims: to preserve, improve and maintain access to the existing and future trail network within Jindabyne and surrounding areas, in an environmentally sensitive and economically viable way, in partnership with public, private and traditional landowners.
