The Central Coast Mountain Bike Club are the custodians of the trail network at Ourimbah MTB Park.

Thousands of Aussies and over the water people ride and enjoy  our trails all year for FREE and yep we maintain them.

Now you can help us build something new, so your family and friends including the ones you don’t know yet plus the many future generations can enjoy.

The new Trailhead Plan

The purpose of this development is to create a community hub, enhance social opportunities and skill development of those attending the park.

The club container will be moved north along Red Hill Rd and turned to face south.

Barriers will be positioned around it to prevent vehicles from vandalising this basic structure.

The club container will overlook a club presentation and gathering area, including picnic tables, seating,  fixed podium structure using sandstone blocks and the installation of a trail map sign.

A new pump track will be the main feature. This will further promote social engagement and skill development. Pump tracks are suitable for everyone  from beginners to professionals, kids to adults, women and men and can be ridden on regular MTB and kids bikes.

Signage to the Ourimbah MTB Park will be installed at the entrance to Red Hill Rd.

The club will also recognise the Aboriginal origin of the name Ourimbah in this development. The Aboriginal word "Oorin" meaning "Belt of manhood" in which a stone axe was carried on hunting expeditions, and "Oorinbah" which is the bora ring or ceremonial ground in which the initiation ceremony of conferring the "belt of manhood" was carried out. 

The development includes; tree removal by qualified arborists, sandstone blocks (seconds) from local quarries, creation of picnic tables from Forestry log stockpile, importing dirt,  machinery hire for container relocation and pump track rough in, shaping of pump track completing largely by the volunteer base  and finally ongoing maintenance by the volunteer base.

Estimated cost $5000 excluding in kind and volunteer effort.

Here's some pump track action by our local riders Charlie Watkins and Katarina Carlsson at Thredbo Interschools this year.



It is time to upgrade the Ourimbah MTB trailhead and the CCMTB Club is seeking your support.

With thanks, sincerely the CCMTB club members,  MTB riders from near and far and future generations of kids and riders thank you for your contribution
