On your bike
Maitland has a variety of bike tracks suitable for everyone. Within Maitland Park, a three metre wide shared pathway loops 1.8km around the perimeter, and a children's bike path located beside the playground area in Maitland Park is also available. The shared path along the Hunter River provides a scenic route for cyclists away from busy roads and a provision of bicycle parking facilities about town offers people the option to ride to their destination.
