The Lake Jindabyne Shared Trail Network is a project that aims to see single track mountain bike trails connect the outer villages and also link with other trail networks in our region. The long term vision is for the trail to eventually circumnavigate 70km around Lake Jindabyne.
The Jindabyne Shared Trail Section 355 Committee are the drivers for the project. With the support of Council, the Committee have so far successfully completed the Mill Creek section of the trail which now connects Jindabyne to Tyrolean Village. The committee are currently seeking funding to continue with the next stage of the project. This will involve linking Curiosity Rocks to Hatchery Bay. View the brochure below for a project overview and brief plan.
