Riders can plan their adventures using Greater Hobart Trails, a convenient and powerful way to plan your visit. The site includes tracks and trails within Wellington Park as well as the greater Hobart region, for walkers, trail runners, riders, people in wheelchairs, people pushing prams, dog walkers and even horse riders.
Riders on walking-only tracks place themselves and others at risk, while also breaching the Wellington Park Regulations. Authorised Officers monitor trail use within the Park and may issue an on–the–spot fine.
