What exactly is a pump track?
A pump track is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed to be ridden completely by riders “pumping” – meaning to create momentum by up and down body movements, instead of pedaling or pushing. (Wikipedia)
But however you ride it, it is great fun!
Great fun for all ages
There is a section of the trail suited to the younger children with the cutest little log roll overs, but also a couple of decent berms to keep the older ones amused as well.
Remember the bikes!
The Sika Trail can be accessed from Potters Gorge as well. It is a 10 km loop that follows the water up to The Kiosk at the Dam, before crossing the road and doing a loop around the hill and back to the campground. The trail has a few steep climbs and is better suited to older children.
Keep an eye out for hikers, as it is a dual access trail.
So next time you head out to the National Park, remember to pack the bikes.
