Beechworth Mountain Bike Trials
Many of the hills surrounding Beechworth are full of Mountain Bike Trails. These trails range from green beginner trails to challenging double black trails for experienced riders.
Beechworth Mountain Bike Park
The MTB Park is on a compact plot of land punctuated by granite, granite and, yes, more granite. What it lacks in size it makes up for in varied terrain and ride options to suit beginners through to advanced riders.
Technical Grade: Beginner to Intermediate and Advanced.
Distance: Loops from 1.2 up to 10 kms in length.
Riding Time: 1 to 3 hours.
Designed to be ridden in a clockwise fashion, the trail begins with a sprint in open grassland before entering the trees and gradually descending. While suitable for the entry level rider, the combination of rocks and multiple gradient changes pose a challenge for the more accomplished rider wanting to lay down a fast lap.
Technical Grade: Beginner/Intermediate
Distance: 10km loop
Riding Time: 1.5 hours
