Pretty much as easy a mountain bike ride as you will find in Sydney, this out and back is perfect for beginners.

Audley Crossing

If driving to the start, parking can be found at the Royal National Park Visitor Centre just next to the Audley Crossing. As this is a visitor's centre it has toilets, a small refreshments kiosk, etc.

So starting at the Northern end, follow this super easy out and back along the firetrail by the Hacking River. There's nothing technical here at all so this ride is perfect for beginners.

Lady Carrington Drive (the name of this firetrail) is 10km long and will take you from the visitor centre to the Southern junction with Sir Bertram Stevens Drive. The trail is mostly very flat with just a slight incline up to that junction in the South.

If the just over 20 kilometre distance doesn't sound that easy to you then as this is out and back along the same trail, just turn around earlier.

Very easy ride, with nothing technical or tricky. I've seen people on road bikes riding this trail, not that I would. There's a bit of a climb at the end, but not stupidly so and it's not loose or anything, so a great challenge for beginners. Very pretty ride along the Hacking river. This ride really is only for beginners, anyone else will find it underwhelming.

But it's nice riding along the river, it's also good for kids learning to ride.
