South Coast United Mountain Bikers Club (SCUM) is a not for profit community mountain bike club based in Nowra on the NSW South Coast.  Formed in 2004, the club aims to foster the sport of mountain biking at both competitive and social levels. 


Club members have built and maintain several cross-country and flow-cross mountain bike trails at three locations in the Currambene and Nowra State Forests, South Nowra and one in the Shoalhaven State Forest at Nowra Hill. All the trails are managed by SCUM under an occupancy permit with the NSW Forestry Corporation.


The club regularly hosts competitive events and social rides and runs a junior development program - the SCUM academy. The Club also partners with external event organisers (eg. ‘Auscycling’ ‘Rocky Trail Entertainment’) to host mountain biking and other similar events at the SCUM trails. School groups and other community and sporting organisations also regularly use SCUM trails for events, training days or camps. Importantly, every day the SCUM trails are ridden by members of the community for enjoyment, health and well-being.




All of the Coondoo trail network is now open with some re-worked downhill sections in the ‘Rocky and Bullwinkle’ and ‘Rock n Roll Suicide' segments. Get out there and ride the new berms and jumps! Construction of the NEW Coondoo Skills Park/Short course race circuit is currently under way but the track and features already in place can be ridden!!

All of the Superbowl trail network is open however the lower segments like 'Tank Trap' may have wet, muddy sections. Ride these sections with care.

All of the Butterfly trail network is open however there are a couple of sections that remain rough and rutted due to erosion issues. Ride these sections with care.

All of the Cabbage Tree Lane Trail network is open but the track contains a number of washed out spots, large ruts etc. Ride with care
