BIKE BULLER CROSS COUNTRY MOUNTAIN BIKING ROAD CYCLING Over 60kms of single track and 40kms of additional trail designed and built by the legendary Glen Jacobs and the World Trails team will leave you feeling spoiled for choice and wanting to spend more time up here. Experience the satisfaction of climbing the 16kms and 921m from the valley floor at Mirimbah up the winding, soaring Mt Buller Tourist Road to the views from our alpine village. An average gradient of 6% will get your heart and legs working and some stints of up to 13% will test your strength and endurance. You’ll cross burbling streams, pass through soaring stands of mountain ash and after seemingly endless hairpin turns you’ll hit the top. Then, it’s all about the ripping ride to the bottom in a fraction of the time. The trails weave around the mountainside rising and falling from 1700m down to 600m offering plenty of variety, views and challenges for riders of all levels. All our trails are low-impact and sustainable and meld into the alpine landscape. Make sure you put the popular 10km Stonefly trail on your list - it’s on many riders’ bucket list for a reason. GRAVITY MOUNTAIN BIKING Copperhead is the flagship of gravity trails and is acclaimed as not only Australia’s first, but also best flow trail. Deftly designed to rhythmically roll down the northern slopes of Mt Buller it’s smooth and addictive, as is the adrenaline rush you’ll get from the 11+kms of gravity trails that allow riders to hurtle to the valley from the top of the Northside slopes. A neat system of road shuttles make the trip back up easy and allow riders to pack in multiple laps in a day. If you get the road riding bug you might want to tick off the other 6 climbs across the Victorian High Country as part of the 7 Peaks Alpine Ascent Challenge.
