#12 of 65 mountain bike trails in Victoria
#3,076 in the world

There are 2 sets of trails.
North from the resort cetre are the ski trails. Wide straight forward fire trails for beginners and families.
South of the Resort are the challenging single tracks.
The trails are still very new, following the devastation from February 2009, where the whole area including the alpine resort centre was completely destroyed by Forest Fires.
The main circuit is the Granite Grind a 15km loop up to a peak of 1432m before dropping 200m down the mountain.
The entrance to the granite grind is about 2 metres into the walking trail marked as the Sumit Access Trail. Head off to the right of the walking trail.
Keep your eyes peeled for this entrance - as it is easy to miss and you'll end up going up the walking trail.
Tight single track amongst trees in the first 5km opens up to boulders and rocks for a technical challenge.
Most of the trail is under 4 months old and has had limited riding.
Some of the trails are faint and you have to follow you nose in some places, other parts are quite soft and will keep you on your toes.
All this will be fixed as the course matures over the coming months and will become a challenging and very rewarding ride.
Look out for the view points across the ranges. bring a camera if you can

Don't miss the right hand turn on the Maroondah Highway for Marysville.
Head through Marysville over the first roundabout, and then right at the 2nd roundabout heading out of town on to Lake Mountain.

At the top you will find (amongst millions of dead snow gum trees) the alpine resort centre - with coffee shop and toilets
