Bump Track MTB

Bump Track Bike Trails

Course of Action

With its diverse wilderness and abundant national parks, Tropical North Queensland is home to many breathtaking mountain biking tracks. It’s important to always follow the advice from Queensland Parks and never venture into dangerous areas to prevent serious injury or death. Check trail conditions for the Smithfield MTB Park, Atherton Forest MTB Park and for all other trails visit Trailforks.

Tap into one of Tropical North Queensland’s most memorable mountain-biking experiences on the Bump Track.

Located in the foothills just behind the famous resort town of Port Douglas, this 6km trail climbs from sea level to almost 400m within just a couple of kilometres, allowing riders to experience one of the biggest downhill thrills in the region.

Originally an access track for Aboriginal people, then a vital link between the coast and hinterland for settlers and miners, this repurposed hiking/biking trail travels through dense rainforest and over crystal-clear mountain streams, offering spectacular views of the coast below.

It’s possible to tackle the Bump Track in both directions, sweating up its challenging 2km climb – which includes the particularly steep Slatey Pinch – then rolling through 4km of ups and downs before turning around and bombing back down.

Or sign up with one of the region’s mountain-bike tour operators, get transported to a starting point up in the hinterland and enjoy the thrills without quite so much hard work.

With both ends of the Bump Track connected to a wider trail network, and other classic Tropical North Queensland trails within easy reach of Port Douglas, it’s just the tip of this area’s mountain-biking iceberg.
