The vanilla classic of the alpine foothills, Mt Beauty!
Mt Beauty’s wide range of classic trails can be tackled on a wide range of bikes. A downhill bike will let you tackle the dedicated downhill tracks, while an enduro bike will cover most of the trails comfortably.
A trail bike will be good for the easier to moderate trails while a cross country bike can be good to handle the climbs but make sure to have a decent size tyre on hand to handle the rocks you’ll encounter.
After some trails, head out for a lap around the lake to relax as a nice spin or for more of an adventure head south from the bike park and follow the gravel roads like Big Hill Rd next to the Kiewa River West Branch to get deep into the mountains for that true alpine feel.
The Mount Beauty Bakery has saved many riders with a post-ride drink and feed for many years is the pick of the bunch for locals and out of towners. The walk to the shores of the lake or a little trip out to one of the many swimming holes or the Kiewa River is great for a cool down swim after a long day riding.
