Mystic Bike Park

Due to Government imposed COVID-19 restrictions our uplift capacity is heavily reduced.

Pre-booking is mandatory.   Future dates are booking out very fast.

We are doing everything we can for a “common sense” approach to be applied by the Government.

Please stayed tuned via our website and social media channels.

Before Mystic was home to the Hero Trail and National Titles it was a network of trails built by passionate locals.  Crafted by hand for over 20 years, these iconic trails cut through the local pines for a truly unqiue riding experience for an Australian bike park.  Easier trails in the lower sections of the hill are feed by more challenging trails cutting down the north face.   The Hero Trail was immediately famous as a 3km long jumps line suitable for all skill levels.  But for many it is the fabled Mystic DH that draws them to push bike, mind and body to the extreme.  In between there is World Cup and Elevation – both launching from the top of the mountain and quite a few other options to take as you make your way down.  It’s an easy pedal along the river into the centre of town with shops, pubs, brewery, distillery, cafes and restaurants.

Trail Map
Quite simply:  You ride down the mountain, then we pick you and your bike up in a bus and take you back to the top.  Repeat this as many times as you like from 10am to 4pm.

At Mystic Bike Park there is one pick-up location and two drop off locations.  Choose between a summit drop off or a Hero Trail drop off.   Our pick-up location is on Morses Creek Road at the paragliding landing paddock car park.  There’s loads of free parking.

We have multiple buses running non-stop, which allows you to choose your own adventure and ride wherever and whenever you like. It’s not uncommon for people to take breaks throughout the day and simply jump back on the uplift shuttles when they feel like it.

We do recommend booking in advance for two reasons: it’s $10 cheaper than the walk-in on-the-day price; and it guarantees you a spot for the day.

Shuttles are not compulsory to enjoy the bike park. You can pedal up – it’s free. Yes there is no charge to enter and ride the bike park. As a guide it would take an average rider 70-90 minutes to pedal from the bottom to the top.  It takes our vehicles less than 15 minutes to cover this entire distance.

Shuttle hours:  10am – 4pm

Days of operation;  every weekend; daily 27 Dec – 31 Jan

Can I walk-in and buy a shuttle ticket on the day? Not at the moment due to COVID restrictions.  Normally:  Walk-in price is $80, compared to $70 online.

Can I just get one uplift?  Not at the moment due to COVID restrictions.  Normally: Yes.  The price is $25.  No pre-booking.  Grab your pass from the drivers.

What is the best bike for Mystic?  Downhill / Enduro

Where do I go when I arrive?  Register and receive your shuttle ticket from our desk under the Blue Dirt marquees in the car park before you can jump on the shuttle vehicles.

Here are some suggestions from our team to get you started. Check the trail map for all options, trail descriptions, etc.

Brand new to MTB:  Playground Loop; Wandi Walk – no need for uplift shuttles to enjoy these.

Newish to MTB:  Shred Kellys Last Stand – take it slow first and build your confidence.

Not newish, but moving along:  Hero Trail into Shred Kellys Last Stand; also Down DJ – progress your speed and jumps.

Riding hard: Mystic DH, World Cup and Elevation from the summit.

Look around: some hidden gems The Eiger; Corkscrew; Dreamweaver; Huggins Downhill.

Talk with our crew: as you ride throughout your visit talk with our friendly crew for suggestions and ideas of what trails to ride, different trail combinations from Summit to bottom, how they set their bike up for local conditions, etc.
