Trail Description

The Erica MTB park has two distinct trail areas and is located between the Tyers Rail Trail and Walhalla Goldfields Rail Trail which provide further opportunities to explore the surrounding area. My thanks go to Neil Allen for the provision of the latest maps of the area and we will provide updates as they become available. Please support the development of these trails by using them and supporting the volunteer efforts being put in.

I have only ridden the SSS trail out of all of these trails so far as well as the adjoining rail trails. Unfortunately the camera was playing up on the day so I don't have pictures of this trail and this trail has now been deleted in any case

I have included a YouTube video below to give you a flavour of the trails and there are further pictures and details on the Erica MTB Park Facebook Page.
