Smithfield is a name all core mountain bikers know as it is the highest profile rainforest trail system in world. The iconic mountain bike park featured in the 2014 and 2016 UCI Mountain Bike World Cups and in 2017 will host the UCI World Mountain Bike Championships.
Just 20 minutes drive north of Cairns Airport, this spectacular rainforest network of trails in Smithfield Regional Park offers some of the most fun-filled climbs and descents in the country for mountain bike riders. Trails sculpted out of volcanic clay twist their way through magnificent vine-wrapped jungles. The park has 60km of trails including UCI level technical short and long climbs plus technical descents for advanced riders.
The rides are all on dirt and loops can be added to create a ride of a few hours or a whole day. The gateway trails are an introduction to mountain biking so families can ride together to build confidence and develop skills. Trail markers line the trails with green for the easy trails, blue for intermediate and black and black diamond trails for the technical and advanced trails.
