The Majura Pines Trail Alliance are the volunteer group who build and maintain of the mountain bike trails in the Majura Pines, Canberra.

The Majura Pines are some the oldest and most famous mountain bike trails in Canberra. However these trails were closed for 2 years between 2012 and 2014 whilst the Majura Parkway was constructed and extensive thinning of the pines was undertaken. Due to these works many of the old trails were destroyed or very well hidden.

The Majura Pines Trail Alliance have contributed over 1000 hours of volunteer work to build new and recover old trails as well as adding a high quality dirt jump park. There are now over 20km of mapped and sign posted trails for all abilities at Majura Pines.

The Majura Pines Trail Alliance continue to construct more new trails, in addition to maintaining those in exitence. Help is always welcomed at build days. To sign up please send an email to

Majura Pines Trail Statistics

Majura Pines Trail Alliance have been collecting trail statistics for just over a year now. In that time there were over 26,000 rides on the main trails to the west of the Majura Parkway.

WE STRONGLY ADVISE THAT YOU DO NOT RIDE AT MAJURA TODAY (Friday 19th). It is highly likely that more trees will fall.
