Be VERY careful to start this trail the right way (go clockwise) from Howqua Gap, where the signs are confusing and lead many to start the wrong way. There are about 9 trails leading out of the gap. You should be leading close to the Circuit Rd and see a creek washing over flagstones very soon after starting. Check your app to make sure.

Probably the best of the non-gravity trails, this one has great flow and sculpting.

Absolutely amazing section of trail. Its hard to beat this supurb example of flow trail. If your just after the best bits self shuttle up to the Pinnacle track and start from there.

An incredible track, but be prepared that getting there isn’t easy. Look forward to returning when I’m fitter and can take better advantage of this awesomely flowy single track.

This is not the epic trail.
Epic trail goes out West Summit trail (past the hut).
The signage is correct.

This is the dazzling prize at the end of the Epic. An up hill section on forestry track, then descends before giving way to brilliant flowy continuously interesting never difficult single track for 600 metres of descent. It goes on and on in the best possible way. Presumably, the Black grade comes from the overall length of the full Epic, but this section is distinctly Blue in flavour. For those not inclined to do the full Epic, a shuttle up to TBJ still makes a great outing.

For the 2016/17 Summer season the Epic will be re-routed from Bluff Spur Hut (top of the Stonefly climb) along West Summit trail and onto Stirling trail before descending to TBJ and rejoining the original track via Hut trail and then Razorback trail.
