A 50-year-old man has died after the quad bike he was riding rolled and ignited on a property near Tenterfield last night.

NSW Police say that at about 8.15pm yesterday, the man was riding an ATV on a property on Washpool Creek Road when it appears to have hit a rock and rolled, trapping the man underneath.

Tragically, the ATV then ignited, and the driver was unable to escape from the bike. He died at the scene.

Emergency services attended and a crime scene was established.

A brief will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.
