About Wooditjup trails
The Wooditjup Trails (formerly known as Compartment 10) are located in the Wooditjup National Park which was renamed to reflect the area’s significance to the Wadandi people. These trails were over 4 years in the making. A long time you might say for just 10km of manicured dirt, but like all truly great trails, there’s more to it than just mileage. This little hillside in Margaret River has been wrung for all it’s worth and pioneered the way that all sanctioned mountain bike trails will be built in the future in Western Australia. Detailed concepts and designs were meticulously created by Common Ground Trails before a single shovel was brought on site. Some may say unnecessary, others might say the proof is in the pudding. We’ll leave it up to you to ride the trails and judge for yourself.
The Woodjitdup Trails provide riders with a (relatively) short but compelling mountain biking experience. If we could summarise the trails with one word, it would be flow. You will always know where you are (that’s what signs and maps are for) but each trail of varying difficulty runs without pause into the next, creating a network where you don’t know how or when to stop. Let alone feel like stopping. The Common Ground and Magic Dirt trail builders have sculptured single track that will leave you re-thinking every session… can I ride that berm just a little faster, jump that double a little higher, climb the Golden Carrot without putting a foot down…
There are so many approaches, angles, lines for every trail and options to link up the trails to keep you amused for hours.
You can drive to the Wooditjup Trails Trail Head by turning west off Bussell Hwy approx. 1km north of the roundabout at the northern entrance to Margaret River or access the trails off the Wadandi Track on the north side of Carters Rd. The trails are accessible via a 10 minute ride from town along the river trails (Alfred Bussell Trail starting opposite Jaroc Gallery on the main street, connecting to the Wadandi Track through to Carters Road) or from the car Park on Carters Rd at the entrance to Wharncliffe Mill.
