The majority of MTB trails have reopened as of today, Monday 13 January, and we are pumped to have both All Terrain Cycles and Blue Dirt Mountain Bike shuttles operational as of this Saturday 18 January.
The Australian Alpine EPIC trail remains CLOSED as does Stonefly and Riverspur trail due to their location over on Mt Stirling and within the Mansfield State Park. We hope to open these trails once access into remote regions is deemed safe to do so via consultation with DELWP and Parks Victoria.
Once again we thank you for your patience during these past few weeks, and we are stoked to see the dust fly on our trails (rather than the bush fire smoke) this week!
