Mt Buller and Mt Stirling Resorts are home to a comprehensive network of cross-country mountain bike trails, which are free to use (during green season December - April) and range from easy to advanced. Mt Stirling boasts the acclaimed Stonefly mountain bike trail, as well as the resort's newest and most spectacular trail (and arguably the country's best), the Australian Alpine Epic.
The vast network of cross-country trails have been designed and built by renowned trail designer Glen Jacobs and his team from World Trail. The trails are designed to be low maintenance, sustainable and blend seamlessly with the alpine environment. Mt Buller and Mt Stirling's cross-country trails are free to use and are suitable for conventional mountain bikes. They range in altitude from 600 metres to 1805 metres, and include a variety of technical features and obstacles.
Most trails are shared with other mountain visitors, including walkers, horse riders and 4-Wheel Drives, so please ride appropriately and be courteous to everyone you meet on the trail.
Hit the trails with your own bike, or hire one. You can even join a guided ride. It’s a great way to experience Mt Stirling first hand!
The Australian Alpine Epic mountain bike trail
The Epic trail is a 40km cross-country endurance mountain bike trail that takes in some of the High Country's most spectacular trails and scenery. Starting at Mt Buller, the Epic takes riders on an incredible journey through the Mt Buller and Mt Stirling Resorts, Mansfield State Forest, and the Mt Russell Education Area. The result of a lengthy planning process and the recipient of significant state and federal government funding, the trail is the jewel in the crown of Mt Buller and Mt Stirling's ongoing trail development plan.
