Clarence MTB Park & Meehan Ranges
Clarence MTB Park and the Meehan Range is 8 km from the Hobart CBD, on the way to Hobart Airport. It's about a 10 minute drive from the CBD, on a bad day!
Opened in 2009, the Clarence Mountain Bike Park offers a range of experiences for novice through to experienced mountain bikers. The park includes dirt jumps, mountain cross, dual slalom, downhill and leg burner cross country trails.
