Falls Creek trail briefing:

Cross country rider

Falls Creek is set to become one of Australia’s best mountain biking locations. Currently Falls Creek has 4 purpose made single tracks made by World Trail and hundreds of kilometres of back country xc trails.

The single trails are fun, fast and scream flow! with both solid climbs and descents, these trails will soon be talked about Australia wide.

Downhill riders:

Falls Creek is home to a brand new intermediate Downhill track. This trail is all about flow, linking corners, fun rock features and high speeds.

Here are 2 of the epic 50km All Mountain Rides that Blue Dirt have developed and are available for you to ride:

  • Skill:                            Advanced/Expert
  • Fitness level:             High fitness
  • Duration:                   4-6 hours riding

Riders are saying this is quite possibly one of the best and most challenging 50km ‘All Mountain’ rides in Australia. This is for riders of advanced-expert skill level with a high fitness level. An ideal bike for this trip would be a dual suspension 6 inch travel bike. Beginning at either Falls Creek or at the top of Mt McKay, this trail will see you traverse up to 6 peaks during your descent down to Mt Beauty (from 1849m down to 365m!!). This route is packed full of technical single trail, fast loose descents, creek crossings, cliffs edge rock gardens and more. Finishing with a huge descent through the Big Hill MTB park at Mt Beauty, riders can choose if they want to finish on a DH trail or tackle some technical XC trail before meeting our vehicle at the bottom.

Big River Ride

  • Distance:                    Approx. 50kms
  • Skill:                            Intermediate
  • Fitness level:             Intermediate  fitness
  • Duration:                     4-6 hours riding

This trail will see you ride a series of 4WD trail and fire track, these trails are very rutted in places and covered with debris making them awesome riding and very difficult in areas with a good skill level needed. You will spend the first hour of your trip climbing followed by a series of huge descents with shorter pinch climbs throughout. The views are absolutely spectacular. You will encounter several creek crossings (Some unridable). The continuous decent of this trail will have your arms and wrists aching to let go of the bars. As you descend, the transformation of your surrounds from bare weather beaten alpine landscape to lush green fern forests and bush land will leave you in awe. You will see an elevation loss of 1511m throughout the ride and will finish at a beautiful swimming hole where you can have a swim and our shuttle can meet you.

Whether its endurance your after or a downhill adrenalin burst, there is something for everyone.
