Blue Mountains: Mountain e-Bike Ride, Narrowneck Plateau

4. Blue Mountains: Mountain e-Bike Ride, Narrowneck Plateau

HOLY MOLY!!! You want views? The only way to do this ride is on our electric e-bikes! This is an amazing dirt fire trail and from start to finish we do approx. 30km and climb 900 vertical meters... that's a lot of HILLS!! Trail surface has loose rocks with some steep descents and unskilled/unconfident riders are likely to fall, so If your skills are not that great, you should check out the Hanging Rock ride with its amazing views...but without the big hills! The spectacular Narrowneck trail follows a ridge-line deep into the valley, offering exhilarating scenic views across the Megalong Valley in the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park. Setting out from Katoomba, you do a short ride on tarmac road and then hit the dirt and head deep into the undulating trails of this un-spoilt wilderness area of the Megalong and Jamison Valleys. This ride like most in the Blueys, is an out and back
