Pickles Hill overlooks Craigbourne Dam at Colebrook and the 15km loop of adventure trail is a great day out! There's plenty of racing options for beginners right through to experienced riders, so no matter your riding level we've got you covered. The event base and transition is beside the lake.

The Course

Each loop has around 500m of vertical climb. Around 100m of this is completed in the first 3 km as the trail ascends to the top of the main ridgeline. From the top there are spectacular views of the dam and valley. The trail then descends through a series of existing logging trails and sections of single track. The hill is largely sand stone based with sandy soil providing a well drained base for the tracks.
