This used to be a neglected and rough 'track' known as the Hell Line. Thanks to a collaboration between Ronn Slusser and other riders from CARR and NT Parks and Wildlife, the 'Hell Line' is no more! This track has been restored and re-named; it is now called the West MacDonnell MTB Track – or 'the West Macs Track' to friends.
The West Macs Track is a 15km mountain bike track. It starts 5km from the centre of town, and comes out 800m from the northern Stuart Hwy, about 8km from the centre of town. The riding on the West Macs track requires an intermediate skill-level, and reasonable fitness. There are no turn-offs or other mountain bike tracks intersecting this track, so make sure you bring enough water to last the ride.
