A comprehensive Adaptive Trail Rating (ATR) System developed to rate the accessibility of trails for adaptive riders.

The ATR System assesses the level of accessibility of mountain-bike trails and their associated amenities for adaptive riders. The level of accessibility (rating) allows users to determine which trails are best suited for their ability and equipment.

The rating is broken down into two components, trails and amenities, each of which has 5 elements that are individually scored in line with the Adaptive MTB Guidelines.

To view the score and details of each element on a given trail, check the Australian map below and start searching trails that have been audited.
