Featuring WA's famously loose pea-gravel surface, tight and windy trails, wildflowers, wildlife and some great views, the Meelup trails have long been Dunsborough's mountain biking secret.
Consistently featured as part of the closing stage of the Cape to Cape race, the twisty trails feature a variety of log and rock obstacles (with easier B-line bypasses). The surface can get extremely loose, especially in dryer conditions - bring your cornering game if riding at pace.
Currently, the trails are unsigned - if possible, hook up with a local rider for guidance, or drop in at the BikeShed for a chat and advice. There are major trail works and upgrades planned, so watch this space.
NOTE: THIS AREA IS AFFECTED BY PHYTOPHTHORA DIEBACK. PLEASE RINSE YOUR BIKE AFTER RIDING TO PREVENT SPREADING IT TO OTHER AREAS.
