Forrest Mountain Bike Trails




A network of over 50km of sustainable, cross-country mountain bike trails in the picturesque Otway Ranges near the small township of Forrest.

The trails showcase the natural beauty of the Otway Ranges, passing through tall Eucalypt forests, dry heathy scrub and dense fern gullies. Designed and built with real mountain bikers in mind, the trails offer experiences that will put a smile on the face of the most hardcore dirt fanatics.

The majority of the trails are purpose-built for mountain bikers, but there a small number of shared-use trails for walkers and mountain bikers. All trails are rated according to the International Mountain Biking Association trail classification system, with trails available for all ability levels. Most trails are designed to be ridden in one direction only.

The trails are clustered in three distinct areas: Yaugher Forest to the north, in and around Forrest, and Lake Elizabeth to the south-east.

Internationally recognised trail builder Glen Jacobs prepared the initial concept plan and has been involved in designing and building several of the trails. With input from Glen and the broader mountain bike community, the project team has succeeded in creating trails that challenge and excite and offer that most intangible quality of mountain bike singletrack flow!
