    Chestnut Pump Track
    A type of mountain biking skills training area, a pump track consists of a circuit of banked turns and features designed to be ridden by riders via up and down body moments, or "pumping". Chestnut Pump Track caters to riders of all skill levels to practise and to advance their techniques within a controlled environment. The pump track is uniquely designed with four subsections, one easy area, two intermediate areas, and a fast bowl that can be ridden collectively as one, when needed. The pump track is best enjoyed with a jump specific hard-tail mountain bike. Appropriate safety gear, including a helmet, is a must when using the pump track.

    Chestnut Bike Park
    Chestnut Bike Park is an area for seasoned mountain bikers to advance their biking skills, and to practise techniques for technical features, like drop offs and jumps. It consists of four progressive skills lines and a skills area. The bike park is best enjoyed with a full suspension mountain bike. Do take responsibility for your own personal safety and use the bike park at the level you are comfortable with. Appropriate safety gear, including a helmet, is a must when using the Bike Park.
