TRC are working with the Snowy Valleys Council to develop a Mountain Bike Master Plan for a 70 kilometre section of the Hume and Hovell Track between Talbingo and Mannus Lake within the picturesque New South Wales Snowy Mountains Region.
This section of the Hume and Hovell Track provides a link between the towns of Tumut and Tumbarumba and is just one part of the 426km walking trail between Yass and Albury in New South Wales. The track was originally developed in the 1980s and follows the footsteps of Hamilton Hume and William Hovell on their expedition to Port Phillip in 1824.
The TRC team have been holding site meetings with the Snowy Valleys Council, stakeholders and landowners and assessing the potential for mountain biking including the exploration of alternative trail alignments to augment and enrich the existing Hume and Hovell experience.
The Master Plan will provide a clear vision and recommendations for future mountain biking through a practical and useable plan which will include business analysis and prioritised costings for a revamped Hume and Hovell Track. The Master Plan will also provide guidance for the future assessment and planning of other sections of the track.
