Mt Adelaide and Mt Clarence are popular with mountain bike riders who use a range of management access tracks and firebreaks to visit the area and take in the stunning views. All mountain bike riders are encouraged to stay on formed tracks, share the tracks responsibly and slow down around walkers.
