When to go

The Derby trail network is open 365 days a year, maintained daily to ensure a premium experience all year round.

An annual winter closure affects Blue Tier and Big Chook only. These trails are closed for the majority of July and August but remain open at all other times throughout the year.
Derby’s hot tip: April to mid-June and September to mid-November are when the trails are in peak riding condition.

Do I have to pay to ride?

The Derby trails are free to ride all year. There are climbing trails giving access to the whole network. Alternatively catch a shuttle to Black Stump drop off.

If you would like to support the maintenance of the trails, when booking your accommodation in Derby, book directly through our website. All Derby accommodation booking commissions directly contribute to funding our trail maintenance crew and world-class trails.


Getting Around

Navigating your way around the township of Derby is easy, with majority of everything in walking distance and the Derby trails in riding distance from your doorstep.

However we recommend hiring or bringing your own car in order to get yourself from your accommodation in Derby to other attractions nearby.
