Dubbed Australia’s #1 mountain biking destination, the area of Forrest certainly has a lot to offer riders of all capabilities. With 16 mapped trails starting at easy 2km rides right through to the Yaugher Super Loop at 11.5km rated ‘More difficult’. The maps are available online so you can plan your ride in advance. Designed around the village of Forrest, the trails showcase the natural beauty of the Great Otway National Park, passing through tall eucalyptus forests, dry heathy scrub and dense fern gullies. The trails have been designed and built with real mountain bikers in mind and offer experiences for beginners and the most hardcore dirt fanatics.
Get on your bike and head to the Anglesea Bike Park for Cyclo-Cross and trails for all abilities (find it on Camp Road). Many trails and named tracks in the Great Otway National Park are an awesome training ground for Cyclo-cross … and guaranteed to get you fitter (and muddier) than your regular ride. Bring your mountain bike and take a hike through the scenic bushy trails surrounding Anglesea exploring the Great Otway National Park on tracks around Eumeralla and on named tracks through the park (seasonal closures apply). For more information and maps drop into one of the MTB specialists in town.
Discover your first riding adventure together along the Anglesea River! Wind-sheltered and valley-nestled, it’s a perfect environment for kids to get out there and have a go. Jump off a pirate ship, ride a kid-friendly mountain bike trail, pop a wheelie off a jump at a bike park, then splash in or on the water. If you can’t get a little dirty, muddy or breathless, you’re not even trying!
