Mountain Biking

 

The Domain is home to more than 65 miles of hiking trails and firelanes Mountain Biking is allowed on all trails and fire lanes except in/on:

 

  • Shakerag Hollow
  • Morgan's Steep to the Cross
  • Solomon's Temple Trail,
  • Bridalveil Falls Trail.

 

The trails vary greatly in difficulty.  While two miles are paved as part of the historic Mountain Goat Trail, other sections are more difficult.  In general, the firelane network provides a great mountain biking opportunity for most users. Hiking trails open to mountain bikes and labeled as moderate for hikers should only be biked by experienced mountain bikers.  Trails marked as difficult for hiking are generally not open to mountain bikers and should not be ridden. All bikers on all trails should wear a helmet. To reduce impact to the trails, riders should refrain from use when wet.

 

Students can enjoy access to mountain biking trails by riding from campus and visitors can park at any of the recreational portals.  Before riding, all users must consult portal kiosks for latest rules and trail conditions. Kiosks are located at Green’s View, the Memorial Cross, the University Gates, Lake Cheston, Morgan’s Steep, Breakfield Road, or Downtown an online map of all mountain bike trails can be found here.

 

The 19 miles of perimeter trail are continually maintained for recreational and educational uses by the Tate Roberts Memorial Fund.
