Seven Valleys | Rydal Showground, Lidsdale State Forest in Rydal, Lithgow NSW

Secret is out, 24hour racing in the Seven Valleys is popular, come join the fun!

From the wonders of the Glow Worm Tunnel to the wild majesty of the Wolgan, the Seven Valleys region encompasses the vast Lithgow City Council area, which has been hosting Rocky Trail events for over a decade!

We are racing on the home trails of the Western Tablelands MTB Club in the Lidsdale State Forest. Managed by the Forestry Corporation those trails are everything MTB trails should be.

Host region: Seven Valleys

Lithgow is located on the scenic Central Tablelands of New South Wales – The Seven Valleys! As visitors and race organisers in and around Lithgow for almost 10 years, we have certainly experienced this diversity – from lookouts with stunning views to it friendly people that you meet in town, which offers a wide variety of food from all around the world. On our BLOG we collected our favourite Lithgow experiences and also asked our local #rockytrailracers for their ideas.
