Mountain Biking in Little Oven, Kalamunda‏, Western Australia Australia

Features:
Steep descents, uphills and a 4WD track
Level:
Advanced
Little Oven is situated in the south part of Kalamunda and Beelu National Park, Swan Region, Perth Hills District.

The circuit is the best in the area and offers several sections which can be ridden both by beginners at a slow pace and more advanced riders. The circuit covers a distance of 10km/6mi on a slippery surface, a challenging biking condition for advanced riders, who look to reach their biking limits and skills.

"MTB at Kalamunda"

The trail is split into three main sections that include a steep descents, uphills and a 4WD track section. The first section is a steep descent down the hill. Although it can be quite windy to start off with, it straightens up towards the end where few jumps to go over are available. In order to pass to the next section, cross the access road. This second section goes up a slight incline but levels out so you can go quite fast. The final section is on a 4WD track and winds back to the main road and at the end, there is a decent size jump spot.

The circuit is best ridden at the start of summer or towards the end of winter when the gravel is more compacted. In summer, the gravel is quite loose which makes certain sections quite difficult and sometimes dangerous. There are some good jumps which can be done at a great speed (50km/h). If you have access to two cars (4WD’s rec.), park one at the top of the trail and the other at the bottom, then you can do the track several times as the ride back up the track is quite grueling, especially in summer.

BY CAR FROM From Perth to Little Oven
42,5km/26,4mi, 50 mins
From Perth, make your way to the Roe highway and take either the Maida Vale rd exit (then veer left at the roundabout, and right onto Kalamunda Rd) if coming from the south, or Kalamunda Rd from the north. Head up Kalamunda rd and you will eventually come to a roundabout at the edge of the town where you turn right, the obvious choice. About 100-200m through the town turn left (towards Coles, signposted The Weir) which is the start of Mundaring Weir Rd. Head along Mundaring Weir Rd for 15mins or so, and you will come across the road to the Camel Farm (a good alternative carpark), a km or two after this on your left is the Dell carpark which is signposted. Park at the Dell and jump on the Munda Biddi heading south. As soon as you cross Mundaring Weir Rd, you will come to a fire trail and you turn left. You will see little Yellow square signs with Little Ovens and Kalamunda Circuit. Follow the Little Ovens and you will climb up to the top of Mt Gungin. Terrible climb but once you get to the top you will be able to go down the other side and eventually back to Mundaring Weir Rd east of where you started. If you are unhappy, jump on Mundaring Weir and head back to the car. If things are going well, then cross Mundaring Weir Rd and keep following the signs back to the Dell.
