The tiny hamlet of Briggsvale is the starting point for Cascade mountain bike trail – an easy, undulating cycling route along a gravel path that takes riders to the heart of Cascade National Park. All around, you’ll see the diversity of the landscape with lush rainforest interspersed with more open patches of eucalyptus trees.
The cycling trail travels east along Briggsvale Road, one of the most likely parts of the parks for visitors to see and hear lyrebirds. You’ll need to be as quiet as possible though, because these beautiful birds are notoriously shy. Aside from birdwatching opportunities, there’s also a chance you might be cycling past some of the resident reptiles, including carpet pythons, who like to warm themselves on the sun-lit paths.
When you reach the intersection of Carters trail, turn around and head back to Briggsvale. This is a great mountain bike ride to take at any time of year, but remember to layer your clothing during winter because the region is high above sea level and can get quite cool.
