The Melrose trails are narrow off camber and exposed with some decent side slopes to draw your eye away from the trail! Whilst the trails are flowing and fun they are more old school technical than bermed with rollers everywhere.

Melrose Bartagunyah

Recently we have added a super d out at the Bartagunyah trails, 5km from town.

The countryside is beautiful with the trails sitting at the foot of Mt Remarkable. You can definitely ride all year round but the summer months need a little planning. Spring and Autumn are best, however Winter riding is never too bad due to the good drainage.

Melrose township is very hospitable and welcomes cyclists to their community. When you come to Melrose drop into “Over the Edge” bike shop for a map and any advice, the trail head is 100m away from the bike shop. We highly recommend grabbing some advice about the best ways to enjoy the trails before you begin riding, so you can put together the best possible loop.

Finding the Trail Head

There are two main ways to head into the trails from town itself. You can head directly across the road from Over The Edge (down the small side street that runs next to the caravan park) and into the trails, or you can access them from the end of Brewery Rd. Either entrance is just a moment’s ride from the main street.
