Falls Creek Mountain Bike Park has 40km+ of singletrack winding through snowgums in brilliant alpine terrain. This is a destination for some serious mountain biking fun! All trails start and finish in the resort so matter which trail you take, each descent is matched with a technical uphill to take you back to the top. There's trails for everyone with easy cruiser, fun flowing descent or all-mountain.
Accommodation is available on-mountain or nearby at Bogong Village or Mt Beauty, 40 minutes by car at the base of the mountain. You'll also find great coffee, locally brewed beer, campsites, cafes and support services.
There's more to mountain biking than throwing yourself down the biggest hill, in fact 60% of MTB trails at Falls Creek are intermediate level. The five ride categories and difficulty levels will help you navigate your way around the dozens of MTB rides in the High Country.
Falls Creek boasts an unbroken 10km gravity trail linking up stand-outs High Voltage, Wishing Well and the brand new Flowtown. All up this is a 525m descent and takes in awesome terrain with berms, jumps and flowing built features all the way from the Summit to the Ticket Box.
SNOWGUM COUNTRY XC LOOP
For a scenic ride with a bit of grunt, Jumpstart, Vortex and Generator trails take in Falls Creek’s most recognised features of the ski lifts, Wombats Ramble and the all-withstanding snowgums. In it's entirety, the loop is over 7km (half climb, half descent) but you can shorten the ride at either Aqueduct and Wombats junctions if you get impatient for the descent.
BEGINNER INTRO RIDE
Gnarly trails are fun but everyone needs to start somewhere. Whether learning, riding with kids or just out for a cruiser, the Nordic Bowl trails include Short Circuit which is a 2.3km loop with gentle berms and rollers that are great to get the feel of riding singletrack. This links up perfectly from the village riding out along the flat Aqueduct Trail and back via Induction, another fun green intro.
SUNSET AT THE TRIG
The Trig needs no introduction. Sitting at the start of High Voltage, this is the highest point in the entire network. It also happens to be the perfect spot to chill with a couple beers at the end of a good day’s ride and watch the sun go down over the mountains. Bring your lights if you plan to ride High Voltage back or you can return via the easier route along Frying Pan and Pretty Valley Road.
BE FOODSTORE IN THE BOWL
The Bowl is a great spot to end the day (Thunderbolt will bring you straight there) and Be Foodstore bring a serious A-game in the aprés stakes. You will find quality craft beers on tap and food with a regional gourmet focus. The big winner is the sun deck - perfect to kick back on a sunny arvo whilst the kids ride the mini bike features out front.
