In the green season, Mt Buller's premier snow runs turn into the ultimate mountain biking course with a variety of challenging technical trail features such as berms, ramps and jumps. Accessible by shuttles, Mt Buller has been operating as a downhill venue since the 1980s, offering generations of riders the chance to feel the ultimate downhill thrill.
Mt Buller features 3 downhill, 1 flow track and 1 gravity trail, ranging from easy to advanced. The trails begin at Spurs Restaurant and are marked with trail-head signs detailing their degree of difficulty (green for easiest, blue for more difficult and black for most difficult), length and elevation loss.
Over the summer of 2021/22, the Mountain Bike Trails across Mt Buller and Mt Stirling have received a major overhaul as part of the Victorian Government Tourism project fund. The trails have been giving a new lease on life turning old classics in new modern masterpieces.
Riding with an Australian Safety Standard approved bike helmet is compulsory on all of our trails. When riding our gravity trails we highly recommend the use of other safety/protective equipment including, but not limited to: full face helmets, elbow and knee pads, shin guards, back protection, protective eye wear, neck brace etc.
In the interests of safety and common courtesy to your fellow riders, please take note of and obey the following suggestions: 1. Ride in control. 2. Slower riders allow others to pass. 3. Remain on trail - no cutting of corners. 4. Obey all signs. 5. Respect wildlife.

Trial Type: MTB Flow/Gravity Difficulty: Blue Distance: 2.5 km
Australia’s first flow down trail begins at the Northside Discovery Centre, snaking its way down Shaky Knees ski run. Large deep berms pump riders out and into a descent past Alpine Central through a number of switch backs before joining Home Trail, then it’s a final plunge through a number of fun and flowy corners, over a bridge and finishing at the Chalet Creek mid-station of the Northside Express Chairlift.
Trial Type: MTB Downhill Difficulty: Blue Distance: 2 km
Outlaw packs all the good parts of technical mountain biking into 2km. With plenty of technical rock sections to keep you on your toes, the trails rewards riders that pick the good lines. Outlaw joins international at the bottom for a few fun turns before the final jump. The trail doesn’t leave from the main trail head but rather past the top of Bonza Chairlift. It makes for the perfect run to test the modern enduro and trail bike.
Trial Type: MTB Downhill Difficulty: Black Distance: 2 km
International is packed with technical rock gardens, steep sections and is home to the two road gaps on Mt Buller. The trail also plays host to a round of the Vic Downhill series every summer. While there are B lines around some of the bigger features, International still requires full commitment from the rider.
Trial Type: MTB Downhill Difficulty: Blue Distance: 2.2 km
ABOM has evolved into a modern gravity trail consisting of jump lines, big turns and just enough technical sections to keep it true to its downhill roots. The trail is suited to the modern enduro bike but is still a lot of fun for a downhill sled.
There are mixed emotions as we reach the end of this incredible green season on the bike trails; feeling sad but high stoke for the season that was all at the same time.
A massive thanks go out to all those who have been a part of the works across Mt Buller and Mt Stirling in transforming out mountain bike trails including a big thank you to the Victorian Government’s Regional Tourism Investment Fund - Stimulus Round for the funding that made reinvigorating the trails possible.
If you didn't make it up here this summer, make a plan to get on your bike in November 2022 and see what all the fuss is about. The bike trails are now closed as winter preparation kicks into gear across the resorts, but we'll keep you posted when our trails roll out for next summer.
Our entire MTB trail network will be fully refurbished through the 2021/22 Summer season, thanks to a $1.25m grant funding from the Victorian Government’s Regional Tourism Infrastructure Fund. Taking place over the next several months, the MTB trail network is getting groomed, developed, and manicured to perfection, but until they're ready, there will be the occasional trail closure across the MTB trail network. We encourage all riders to inspect the new trails before committing to an extreme run of the trail.
