Centre trail


Centre trail is an easy mountain bike ride that takes in scenic views, wildflowers and Aboriginal rock engravings in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, near Terrey Hills.

A rewarding ride through heathland leading to a fascinating site of Aboriginal heritage, Centre trail traverses along a ridge off McCarrs Creek Road near Terrey Hills, in Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park.

Explore the trail in spring and you’ll be wowed by the dazzling display of wildflowers such as the red boronia and fuchsia heath. Their floral aroma mingles with the scent of eucalypt to create a heady perfume. As you ride along the ridgeline, be sure to take in the scenic views over several waterways, including Coal and Candle Creek and Akuna Bay.

Climbing a small knoll, you’ll find a rock escarpment and tessellated pavements revealing faint engravings of footprints etched into the sandstone. As you ponder their significance, whisper an acknowledgement to the original Guringai people of this country, before retracing your steps.

Toilets and picnic facilities are located at Illawong Bay on Liberator General San Martin Drive.
