Australian Mountain Bike Trail Guidelines 

MTBA have a number of resources to help support clubs with the development and maintenance of trails.  The Australian Mountain Bike Trail Guidelines are an important resource for land managers, trail professionals and mountain bike groups.  It provides guidance to ensure a consistent approach to planning, designing, constructing and managing sustainable mountain bike trails.
The Guidelines aim to ensure that mountain bike trails are developed to align with landholder expectations, to meet the needs of riders, to minimise environmental impacts and to provide opportunities for the public to connect with the environment.

The Australian Adaptive Mountain Bike Guidelines is a detailed guide to help land managers, trail builders, event directors, mountain bike clubs, charities and associations develop inclusive mountain bike trails, events and programs for people with disabilities in Australia.
