Forrest Mountain Bike Revitalisation Project Update

The Southern Network trails are open to the public again during a ‘soft launch’ period. This period is giving us an opportunity to review what works as intended and what may need adjusting prior to the full launch. We continue to encourage mountain bikers to ride the new trails with caution over the first year as the surface beds in.

Designed around the village of Forrest, these trails showcase the natural beauty of the Otway Ranges, passing through tall eucalypt forest, dry heathy scrub and magical fern gullies. The 16 trails have been built with real mountain bikers in mind and offer experience for beginners, intermediate and hardcore dirt fanatics….always choose a trail that suits your riding ability.
