Summary:
Once you head down the 4x4 track the track, there is a fast dh section for a few hundred metres then you ride along the road for a few kays till you reach the top of the telstra tower. take a left 1/2 way down and head off on a bush trail, from here it is full on intense downhill all the way down into churchill, (im talking 15km of downhill single trails)You could also opt for the other alternative of taking the south 4x4 trail when on the summit of Hugley, and this also gives you endless trails back into Jerralang, too many to describe! if you want more details, or wanna be shown the trails e-mail me leighpeto_01@hotmail.com These trails range from experienced to beginner, there is something for everyone.

Recommended Route:
Be prepared to leave a car at the bottom of the mountain and drive the other one up to the summit. because it is a good 2-3 hr ride to the top!The trails are basically set on endless parts of the strezlecki ranges, so this means that there are about a zillion ways to get your tyres on some absolute kick arse trails. The best ways to access is to go to yinnar south and park at the reserve, or just head out past churchill a little and take a left at jerralang gunction and then another left about 1 km up the road. (jerralang north road) once you are on this road it winds endlessly up into the hills, you can basically take your pick of trails as you are driving up. Once you get onto the dirt road the trails are better though. and if you keep going for about 7-10 km you will come to the Mt Hugley turnoff, head up this for about 300m and you'll reach the summit, park the car here and head off alon the north-east 4x4 track from here the options are endless.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There are soo many trails in this area, like hazelwood North trails, which arent as high up as the ones mentioned, but you can still spend a few good hours playing round on some of the trails, longest about 2km of dh but very fun, encorporated with some short steep parts this area is a blast

Summary:
Well this place sure does have the scenery! Awesome views and wildlife in very cool forest. Make no mistake the atmosphere at this place is excellent. Plenty of water to ride through and some nice places to ride your bike off a ledge into the shallow creek. Only downside is getting to the top. Once up though the views are worth the effort. The ride down is very steep and the track is very rutted out in places so make sure you're suited up as theirs some nasty rocks and ruts that could cut you up very easily. There's a cool water bar at the bottom so with enough speed you'll fly straight through it. There are also plenty of other tracks and around the mountain, it's just a matter of finding one's you like. Overall the place is a very nice spot to ride although it's a bit of a hike to get here. Worth a look though if you havent been here.

Recommended Route:
Same, however you can drive your car all the way down middle creek road til you reach a water crossing. Park here then ride flat out through the water crossing which is about 5 metres wide. make sure you check the depth first!! Once through here head up the track until you get to a very steep hill on your right. Then it's a very very nasty climb to the top as it's very steep. Remember though you get to ride down this on your way back!! Once you get to the top of the first hill you'll see you can go left or right. Go right for about 20 metres then to your left you will see another steep hill to climb!! Climb this then you've got plenty of singletrack.

Summary:
This trail has something for every rider, not the least of which is solitude. In fact there are only a handful of riders that know about this trail. Each turn brings you into a new setting, whether it be long decents through pine forests or following ridges amoung Blue Gum trees. But it is not until you get deep into the damp single trails that lead into the accient Myrtle Beech forests that you experence something really special, that is you alone amoung trees and forests that date back to the last ice age. The sounds of the forest close in on you as you become swamped by the smells and coolness of the area, the tracks themselves head of in all directions but don't be affraid they all lead back to civilaisation.....eventually!
For the more adventurous the steep rides into the gullies will make you wish you had an extra couple of inches of suspension travel as some of the drop-offs can sneak up on you quickly. Best time to ride in this area is 11 am till 3 pm, remember it gets dark quicker in these areas and always tell someone when you are due back and roughly where they can find you, this area is very issolated and seldom sees another traveller.

Recommended Route:
As described in the Notes.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
College Creek reserve....this is further South from Middle Creek and lies on the East side of Budgeree Road before Englishes Corner.
