Mountain Bike Trails outlined in pocket map

Trail enthusiasts now have a clearer view of where to go in Collie for their next adventure, with the introduction of the region's first Mountain Bike Trail pocket map.

The Bunbury Geographe Tourism Partnership recently launched the Collie River Valley and Wellington National Park MTB Pocket Map, encouraging riders to conquer the region's 25 trails.

BGTP tourism marketing and development manager Anissa Williams said the map encapsulated the region's trails in one easy-to-use format that would fit into a rider's pocket.

"With the ongoing growth of trails, we are also excited to announce that a second map edition is already in the pipeline which will be released once the trails' development and branding projects are finalised," she said.

"Furthermore, no matter the internet coverage, riders can easily find the best trails."

Ms Williams said the region was committed to continually creating useful information resources for riders.

The pocket map aims to introduce riders to cutting edge tracks throughout the region with information on grade, elevation, length, trail type and landmarks.

It also includes safety tips, essential contacts, and supporting tourism offerings such a servicing, rental, transfers, accommodation and importantly, where to eat and drink along the way.

WA Sport and Recreation Minister Mick Murray said the map was another step in the goal of identifying Collie as the state's premier trail town.

"The McGowan Government recognises the value of growing mountain biking trails, facilities and support services for riders and commends the map's development," he said.

"The Collie River Valley and Wellington National Park's growing trails network is set to become Western Australia's best - helping to attract visitors and all levels of rider from across WA and Australia to experience the region."

The project was funded by the South West Development Commission, Shire of Collie, and Tourism WA.
