More Information:
The original ethos of the builders was to make a series of trails that could be ridden by riders of all ages and abilities, in any direction or order. There now exists about 16km of singletrack, much of it of this nature. Since the early phases of building and the success of this plan, some newer tracks have been made more challenging and somewhat directional: notably Uncle Teddy's Wonderland, Harlowe's Howler and Rick's New Track.
The gentle terrain of the location and near absence of rocks means that Bom Bom SF trails are generally low to, at most, moderate in their technical rating, making it a great spot for beginner and recreational MTBers. In general, the tracks are quite tight, winding through trees and small gulleys. The soil is hardpack with what's known locally as "pea gravel" over the top of much of it. This makes cornering at times "interesting".
More advanced riders will find challenges of their own in trying to ride 10/10ths through the tight trails and intriguingly sketchy corners.
