Green (Easy) Blue (More difficult)
Mt Baw Baw’s downhill mountain bike track has developed a reputation within the industry as one of the most challenging and exciting runs in the country. The starting platform is located along side Currawong drive in the Baw Baw village and riders are faced with a large table top before disappearing down the old chairlift run. Riders meander in and out of the bush as the tackle log drops, berms, boulder sections, rollovers, jumps and challenging downhill ramps. Australia’s best riders have conquered the 300 vertical metres plummet in just over 3.20 mins
The main trail will challenge the most competent rider however those not so experienced have the opportunity to bypass the more difficult features via alternate routes. This summer the DH1 track will be open to the public 7 days a week (excluding major event weekends). Just pay your $10 trail access fee at the Adventure Hub when you arrive on mountain, and you’re good to go.
A DH1 shuttle service back to the village will run every half hour from 10am to 4pm most weekends, riders also have access to bike washing facilities. Shuttle avail week days with group bookings of min 4 people. ph 03 5165 1136
