TRAIL ACCESS: BY CAR: Park at the end of Quarry Road. Trail Map and three trail heads there. BY BIKE: Cycle along Peats Ferry Road, accessing OMV down the ramp behind Hornsby swimming pool or Quarry Road. BY TRAIN: Put your bike on the train and hop off at Hornsby station. 99% of the trains to and from Sydney CBD stop at Hornsby.
DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: Approx. 6km per lap. Not recommended for novices, unless you confine your ride to the green trails on the map. (H20 Westleigh is less intimidating) Technical flowy trails with several big drop-offs and rock riding for experienced mountain bikers. There are also demanding, technical climbs- so all up OMV is an excellent mental and physical workout.
FACILITIES: No toilets or change rooms yet at OMV (though there is a toilet in neighbouring Hornsby Park). A central new OMV jump spot has been completed by Synergy Trails to hang out at. Nearby cafes and the swimming pool to relax in after your ride. Support the local businesses.
