Mountain Bike Trail & Skill Park

Our trails offer moderate downhill biking with gradual climbs in a forested setting. The Links at Brunello is an ideal close to the city’s core to ride and appreciate nature.

Due to elevation gain and variety of terrain our bike trails are rated as Beginner/ Intermediate and Advanced. Currently the 1st phase is at completion and has many stunts and features with approximately 5km’s of trails. The 2nd phase will include up to 10 to 15 km of built trails. The Links at Brunello will be charging fees for use which will help cover maintenance and future trail work of the mountain bike park.

The area is perfect for:

Learn to ride lesson, Group Sessions, Private lessons, Private party rentals and Demo days

We are also just a few cranks away from the BLT Trailhead located at the access trail: Trinity Way is located by the Trinity Church in Timberlea

Trail Ratings

Beginner

Generally smooth trails with rolling terrain and varied surfaces such as dirt, exposed bedrock and gravel. Low roots, rocks and other avoidable obstacles may be present. Requires basic bike handling skills and fitness. Optional Intermediate features and lines may be present.

Intermediate

Challenging riding that may contain steeper slopes, and larger obstacles, possibly on narrow trails with constructed features. These may include jumps, ramps, large roots or rocks, rollable drop-off’s and other technical elements. Must be an experienced rider. Optional Advanced features and lines may be present.

Advanced

More challenging riding, potentially with very steep slopes and rough terrain. Mandatory obstacles and features such as non-rollable drop off’s, jumps, rock faces, ledges, and unpredictable terrain may be present. Optional Expert features and lines may be present.

Expert (Future builds)

Very difficult riding, only for very experienced and highly skilled riders. Terrain width, steepness and surfacing may be wildly variable and unpredictable. Large mandatory drop-off’s, chutes, rock faces, and gap jumps may be present. Use extreme caution, inspect features first and walk sections if needed.

Pickleball

We have 4 dedicated pickleball courts available for play on top of our state-of-the-art facility. Need a paddleball racquet and balls? We have rentals too! Never played before, but keep hearing about it…. Pickleball is a paddle sport that combines elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, similar to a Wiffle Ball, over a net. The game is played on a court similar to a tennis court, but with smaller boundaries.
