Rocky Trail Destination will deliver the world-class Mogo Adventure Trail Hub after the company signed the contract for its detailed design, construction and maintenance this month.

Rocky Trail Destination is very familiar with the region having run mountain bike events in Mogo since 2018.

With its sub-contractor Next Level Mountain Bike, the two companies have pledged to bring the best of international trail building practices to Mogo.

“Every one of our trails has a unique style: we do not use a cookie-cutter approach,” Rocky Trail Destination’s Martin Wisata said.

“As ‘destination builders’ we will drive the establishment of the Mogo Adventure Trail Hub to become a significant trail-based tourism network in Australia, providing the high quality and variety of trails that will inspire and excite a broad range of riding levels.”

Next Level Mountain Bike will construct the trails, with track designer Marcelo Cardona saying the company “lived and breathed” mountain bikes.

“We not only design and build the next generation of mountain bike infrastructure, we share a passion for coaching, events, riding and racing bikes and mountain bike adventures,” he said.

“With a dedicated crew of trail builders we will be keeping our eyes off the ground with the big picture of the mountain bike industry trends in mind to build the Mogo trails, which represent the highest international-level quality standards.”

The 155km trail network will comprise about 125km of new trail and formalisation of the 30km of existing mountain bike trails in Mogo State Forest and Deep Creek Dam. It is based on the masterplan approved in 2020 and will connect to Mogo and Batehaven.

The hub has the potential to attract 45,000 visitors to Eurobodalla in its first year of operation, resulting in an estimated $11.8 million injection to the local economy.

The $8 million project will be built using a $5 million grant from the NSW and Australian governments’ Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund and a $3 million grant from the NSW Government’s Growing Local Economies fund.

Eurobodalla Shire Council is working closely with Forestry NSW on the project and hopes construction will start early next year.
