Mountain Bike Season starts November 16th! Come check out Mt Baw Baw's downhill mountain biking tracks and cross country trails! Download our Trail Map or visit trail forks below!
Mt Baw Baw’s downhill mountain bike track the ‘DH1’ has developed a reputation amongst the Australian riding community as one of the most challenging and exciting runs in the country. The start gate is located along side Village Centre and riders are faced with a large wall ride before disappearing down the old chairlift run and Jeep Track. Australia’s best riders have conquered the 300 vertical metres descent in just over 3 1/2 minutes.
The main trail will challenge the most competent rider however those not so experienced have the opportunity to bypass the more difficult features via alternate ‘B-line’ routes. The Mt Baw Baw DH1 track is open during the green season (excluding major event weekends) from the end of November til late April each year.
Please check in at Guest Services before riding. Mt Baw Baw requires full face helmets to be worn on DH1 and advises the use of body armour.
From summit check out Upper Tyers, Tanjil Link (Int) and Mueller's (adv) single tracks or take it easy on the Summit and Village green runs. Village and McMillan trails meander through undulating terrain down to the boundary of the Baw Baw National Park in the north. The ride is picturesque with rest areas and picnic tables scattered along the trail.
Visit the Resort’s iconic landmarks and enjoy stunning sights including fields of wildflowers, forests of Snow Gums and Mountain Ash and the impressive view from the summit. Anthill lookout provides spectacular views over Baragwanath Flat to Mt Phillack and Mt Whitelaw, whilst numerous species of mammals can be spotted in the snow gum woodland including wombats and deer. All levels are catered for, meaning beginners right through to hardened experts can explore the area using pedal power!
