Good for advocacy??
I throw in the question marks because these days, its hard to know what is good and bad news in trail talk...

They should have mentioned the Allowance by land manangers earlier in the article. They could also leave out the comments about the mud. Should not ride when its muddy.

Really enjoyed the tight intermediate track.

I cant recomend this place enough. I have raced at both Tathra & Manna Park and they are sweet, A credit to Jake and the rest of the track buildig crew .If you want fast flowing single track in a beautiful quiet bushland setting with friendly locals this is the place to go. Ill be heading down for the racing in July.

Just thought I would let you know the Wilderness Coast MTB Club (organiser of the March - Tathra Enduro) is staging a Winter Warmer Race Series.

The first race is at Manna Park (Merimbula) on July 16/17. It is being held in conjuntion with CORC, with club XC races on Saturday, ahead of Sunday's Frosty Fingers 3hr Enduro. Enduro race categories include solos, pairs and juniors. There's accommodation on site at Manna Park.

The second race is at Tathra on Sunday, September 4. The Frosty Feet 3hr Enduro. Race start 11am. Enduro race categories include solos, pairs and juniors (which allows for some thawing).

More info will be posted on Details are just being finalised.

Is it like Mt Annan you have too pay too ride the trails ? This will keep the tracks in tip top condition & keep motos away

The $5 charge is for riding Manna Park/Mandeni as the trails are on private property. The owners employ people to maintain the tracks.

This is something I would ride all day the flow looks awesome but therewould be some techy stuff in there I bet , it couldn't be that smooth the whole way ?'s picture

The $5 charge is for Mandeni resort, which has golf, archery, mtb log roll skill park etc. Nice place for the family while you dissappear for a lap or two.

Mandeni is non-technical but is still a challenge - there are hills and it is singletrack. The Mandeni loop is adjacent to Manna park, and you can follow signs and do one big loop which is about 17 km covering Mandeni and Manna Park

Manna Park is a fantastic track with some tricky tech sections and some nasty switchback pinches which I have never managed to ride. Manna Park has its own car park and can be ridden without entering Mandeni, so there is no entry fee to Manna Park

Have posted before about Tathra - definately a great all round destination.
