Description

This is a secondary forestry road that bypasses much of the sealed Avro Road climb/descent through the Blue Mountains.

Both ends of this road are blocked by a couple of large concrete blocks, in an attempt to keep out vehicle traffic.

The road, and the surrounding pine plantation, is private property. The land owners do not welcome mountain bikes on to their property. Please respect their wishes. Foot traffic is OK – see the contact details below.

Getting there

Western end is at the top of Avro Road in the Blue Mountains, a few metres from the eastern end of Wheeler's Way.

Eastern end is at the top of Avian Road.
