      In June 2012, a new downhill mountain bike trail opened at Bowden Spur in Kinglake National Park. This trail is the first of three that will eventually be built on the Spur. The 2km long trail is designed to delight and challenge experienced downhill mountain bike riders.

      The trail, named Shepherds, is a diverse technical downhill trail to test the abilities of experienced riders. It has a number of dirt jumps, rock gardens, bomb holes, flowing earth berms and contains large sections of off-camber riding. The total drop along the length of the trail is 233 metres.

      The trail is recommended for experts only as it runs over very challenging terrain and includes frequent obstacles. It has the extremely difficult rating of Double Black Diamond.
      Primary Trail Type: All-Mountain & Downhill
      Shuttleable: YES

      Access Info:
