Kate Reed Nature Recreation Area is the place to go for mountain biking fun. The reserve boasts a network of popular mountain bike trails in Tasmania’s northern hub of Launceston. Whether you are taking the family for their first bush ride or are a more experienced rider looking for a couple of hours of easy enjoyment, Kate Reed can provide.
If mountain biking is not your thing, you can also utilise a selection of the Reserve’s tracks for running, hiking or taking your furry friends for a walk through the bush. The Reserve, which features various eucalypts and many small threatened plant species, is named after Kate Reed, the wife of the late Henry Reed who owned Mount Pleasant Estate. The estate once included the land that today makes up Kate Reed Nature Recreation Area.
