MTB XC Singletrack

Falls Creek 3699 MAP

Welcome to the next BIG THING in Australian Mountain Biking

 

Australia’s newest mountain bike park is stepping it up this summer with 7 new trails now open, making 12 total and 25km of singletrack! Filled with berms, jumps, rollers and flow the XC trails of Falls Creek Mountain Bike Park are well worth the visit.

The majority of Falls Creek’s trails are rated blue (intermediate) with the odd green (beginner) and black (advanced) run thrown in for good measure. Uphill and link trails allow for accessible riding every day but you can take out the legwork by hooking up with a gravity shuttle – exclusively provided by Blue Dirt Mountain Biking on specific dates (see below).

Stop in at the new Village Bike Cafe for a coffee, some gear or a service. You can also take advantage of our public repair station right alongside.

This is the time to ride, and Falls Creek is the place to do it!
