G'day guys! This trail is very versatile with a number of quick, but not very technical downhill sections, aswell as the possibilty of some good and fairly quick circuit rides. All trails can be accessed from the Billy's Creek entry, from here you can follow a number of loops which can take you back to where you come from. Alternatively you can run a shuttle with a couple of cars from the top of the park off Lindners Rd and shoot down through the park to the Billy's Creek car park. Maps of the park are provided at the Billy's Creek carpark.
The best XC route is the Blue Gum Hill track, it offers some good climbing with some good quick hills down the other side and amazing views a from the top! Start riding at the Billy's Creek carpark and follow this track to the beginning of the Blue Gum Hill track.
For a flast flowing blast downhill, you can do a shuttle up Lindners Rd, and when the road turns sharply left and becomes dirt, there is also a small dirt track that can be followed straight onwards from Lindners Rd. Follow the small road and it will take you to the top of the National Park and the top of Lodge track. From here you can shoot down either Lodge track or Clematis track. Lodge is a lot straighter and faster, where as Clematis is fast but has alot of switchbacks. Both are approximately 5-6kms in length back to the Billy's Creek carpark and alot of fun!
Other recommended trails in the same area:
Middle Creek, check other reviews.
Boolarra to Mirboo Nth rail trail, pretty flat and straight, still a nice ride though.
