Meelup Trails

Meelup Trails

Now new and improved! Featuring WA’s famously loose pea-gravel surface, tight and windy trails, wildflowers, wildlife and some great views, the Meelup trails have long been Dunsborough’s mountain biking secret.

Consistently featured as part of the closing stage of the Cape to Cape race, the twisty trails feature a variety of log and rock obstacles (with easier B-line bypasses). The surface can get extremely loose, especially in dryer conditions – bring your cornering game if riding at pace.

The trails were recently reshaped by Kalamunda’s The Trail Builders.There are more upgrades in the works, including better links to the DDCC trail network.

Please check the status of the trails on the Cape Mountain Bikers Website – there are regular upgrade and reconstruction dates and some trails might be closed on those dates.
