Ok I have taken this Saturday off work, and hurrah the You Yangs are open for business again
Mountain Bike Trailshttp://www.parkweb.vic.gov.au/resources05/05_2219.pdfhttp://www.parkweb.vic.gov.au/resources05/05_2103.pdf
The You Yangs has two designated mountain biking areas that contain over 50 kilometres of exciting and environmentally sustainable trails that cater for riders of all ages and ability.
The easier and flatter Kurrajong Plantation weaves for 20 kilometres and consists of three loop tracks through established Eucalypt plantations. The Kurrajong Plantation is ideal for family groups, wanting to experience mountain biking for the first time right through to experienced riders wanting to test their endurance and speed.
The more testing Stockyards area in the north of the park has a range of flowing single trails and steep technical sections through rocky landscapes totalling slightly less than 40 kilometres. This area contains two down hill tracks, a 4 cross track (under construction) and a range of cross country tracks that will test riders of all levels.
All trails are clearly sign posted with directional information and gradings. A map can be picked up from the Park Office or downloaded from the link below, detailing information on the trail.
Parks Victoria, together with the Geelong Mountain Bike Club, has carefully designed trail alignments to protect environmental values of the park, whilst providing a high quality Mountain Biking experience. The trail system has been designed for sustainable long term use. You can help ensure that these trails remain open for use by only riding on formally signed trails and not creating or using informally created trails (ie those not identified on the map).
There are a number of other trails within the park that are for other recreational user groups. Please respect these trails that are designated for walkers or equestrian use only and are signposted accordingly.
So anyone care to join for a day of fresh new trails before the smelly unwashed ruin them again
