Full Description: 

Note, there is no parking at the track head on Warrigal Dr or near that intersection.

Please park at Ruddock Park and ride up Quarter Sessions Rd to Warrigal, or park well away from the crest and deep curving dip. See parking notes on map. Please do not park near the crest on Quarter Sessions Rd near Warrigal Drive or in Warrigal Drive. Please do not park out front of the Fire Station or the nearby houses.

Water and toilets are available at Ruddock Park.

About 30 m along Warrigal, the access trail is on the right. After a short uphill trail, there is a loop on a grassy flat area with a couple of links across to the main trail network.

Trail status and a trail map are available as pinned posts at the top of the Westleigh MTB Track FB group page (link below).

It has been reported that council has been removing the displayed map, and other signage.

A link to a map is below. Almost all trails flow better clockwise. There is no signage. It is an informal trail. It is not an official dedicated mountain bike trail like Old Man's Valley (Hornsby Mountain Bike Park). There may be riders coming 'the other way', and there may be walkers, who are most likely locals. Westleigh is a close community, and these trails have coexisted with walkers because we all make and effort to get along. Direction is not formalised without signs.

Locals are generally sensitive about people parking near the crest or in, or anywhere near Warrigal Drive. Some local riders are also frustrated turning right into Warrigal with cars filling the cycling lane near the crest. Stay away from the crest please. Local riders have asked council to put no parking signs there, however council have said 'no'.

The site is earmarked for future larger sports development, and will include a formal MTB trail network eventually.

There are almost always locals at H20. If you want a tour, just ask around.

There are also many local (and visiting) families and little kids riding H20. They are all very important. Future advocates and spreading support for off road cycling. Please be patient. If you want to race, go enter a race. If you don't have line of sight, slow down. Grandmar might be standing there with her grand daughter. They have just as much right to be there as a mountain bike rider.

There is a shopping centre with cafe's, bottle shop, service station, Aldi, restaurants, and more, just south west of Ruddock Park. The nearest bike shop is Thornleigh Cycle Sport on Pennant Hills Road. There is also Kuringai Cycles at Hornsby.
