Trail Description

The Beechworth Mountain Bike Park is located on the outskirts of Beechworth township. The Mountain Bike Park is on a block of land measuring approximately 1.5 km long by 0.75 km across. The main circuits, downhill runs and jumps track are located in 2/3rds of this area which means that the trails are fairly compact by nature and consist of a fair bit of "switchback" parallel style tracks to maintain the compactness of the site. The courses, despite this, are good fun with strategically located trees and the ever present rocks adding to the obstacles on the track.

A trail map on a sign is available at the trailhead.

The following photo gallery has been taken in order from the car park area, heading west and then traversing the park in a clockwise direction. Following are pictures of the XC circuit following the XC loop signs at the trailhead. First portion of the circuit is fairly wide and open.
