The Yaughter loop is a loop of 11.5 km, mostly singletrack, but some forestry roads. Off this are many singletrack loops, some flowing, some technical. Not too much climbing or descent in a dry eucalypt forest. The southern trail has some forest trails but is mostly dual use pedestrian/MTB paths on the western side of the Barwon Reservior.

From Melbourne, follow the main freeway toward Geelong, then either turn off onto the Colac road and head south from Colac for an hour to Forrest or take the scenic route down the Great Ocean Road (Torquay-Lorne-Apollo Bay) and turn north and travel an hour to Forrest. The trails are in two parts: the Southern trailhead is in town with a parking area, toilets and shelter; and the Yaughter trailhead is south of the town a couple of kilometres up a dirt road called Boundary Road - parking only, no facilities.
