Beechworth Mountain Bike Park

Kudos needs to go to the Beechworth Chain Gang for creating and maintaining the Beechworth Mountain Bike Park and many of the trails in the region, along with prisoners from the Beechworth Correctional Centre.

Beechworth Mountain Bike Park is on Alma Road, and is set on a moderate hill making it the perfect location for all rider skill levels.  There is an excellent mix of short pinch climbs, tight switchbacks, and technically challenging sections all housed within single tracks that loop to and from a single trailhead. The park consists of a cross country single track, a short course downhill, a jumps area and a beginners cross country loop.  The downhill crew are also catered for with a short, fast and technical track that is easily shuttled for endless runs.

Murray to Mountains

The Beechworth to Everton leg of rail trail is a 16km freewheeling journey passing beautiful bush land, over old bridges and through cuttings.  It is ideal for most members of the family or group to enjoy, but please plan for the return journey.

We recommend driving down to Everton Station and leaving a car packed with provisions for a picnic and shuttle back to the start. This gives a great option for people who don't want to make the slow and steady return climb back to Beechworth.

The Flametrees Mountain Bike Track runs alongside the trail starting on the left just passed Diffey Road and continues 5km downhill. On the return journey please ride the dedicated uphill trail on the left beginning where the downhill trail ended.
