Trail Directions
Take heatherton rd east out of Dandenong,turn left at Belgrave Hallam rd,then turn left at Horswood rd. The main car park is at the end of Horswood rd. You will have to pay a small entrance fee but it is worth it for the map of the park you get. There is also toilets,water and bbq,s here. Once you have the map you can ride in through other entrances(Hallam north rd is a good one.)without paying.

Summary:
It doesn't get any better than Lysterfield - single tracks - fireroads it's all in Lysterfield. In the afternoons you'll come across Kangaroos - now how cool is that. Lysterfield is actually Melbourne's MTB mecca - there's all kind of terrain suitable for beginners till hard core XC bikers. all i can say is "Thank God for Lysterfield"!!! I've brought wifey and kids (10 & 19 yo) and the kids are hooked!!! There's now heaps of single tracks carved into the hills (it wasn't there 10 years ago) - great job - there are nice twisty bits u often see in magazines and dream u can ride places like that - it's in Lysterfield.

Summary:
Me and some friends went there for a competition, got some good single track stuff also there are some good dh bits but you have to ride a while to get to them. Overall a lot of awesome tracks

Recommended Route:
I reccomend the commonwealth games track, it is quite challenging but really fun

Other recommended trails in the same area:
if you go to the end of the lake to the part with the bridge, go over the bridge and there are some cool single tracks there

Summary:
Awesome as place. Has trails everywhere. You have to push youself though if you want to ride down some cool downhill trails, theres a lot of uphill riding which i dislike. Member underneath this review, blue_neon i rode with, so ditto with all the stuff he said. Overall this place is very good.

Recommended Route:

Summary:
This is an awesome collection of off road trails. If you like trail riding, this is for you! There are trails to suit all difficulties as well as jumps, and hilly areas.

If you want to ride the '06 Commenwealth games track, then follow the 'Boundary' track and you'll see it. There are so many different trails, you just have to explore!

Recommended Route:
The best place to start would be at the car park area that is near the bridge beside the lake. Ride to the end of the bride and up the short path and you will have already found an entrance to an off road track. Turn right on the main 4WD path untill you come to 'Tram Track'. You can follow this track, and it is about endless. Since this track is like a connection track to the trails, just riding along it you will see entrances and exits.

Summary:
This area is great, the Hallum North carpark is a good place to start and there are a few single tracks to choose from. One starts right at the carpark then ducks and weaves thru the trees or if you want something technical try one of the tracks starting on the forrest side of the Valley view track, this track includes some steep drops to a rock ledge and then a short log ride. There are tracks all over so explore and you are likely to find some awesome rides

Recommended Route:
Hallum North rd Car Park

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Churchill Park
