This race provides a fast-paced tour of Mt Buller by taking in many of the best sections of single track located close to the Mt Buller Village. All the local favourites are included like a top to bottom run on Gang Gangs, the Misty Twist berm descent, the Medusa switchbacks on Silk Lane, the cranking Corn Hill descent and the challenging Split Rock climb back up to the village.

As well as plenty of super-fun descents the course also includes 4 solid climbs that will get your legs working and lungs heaving as you conquer the switchback climbs that get you back to the top at a ridable gradient.

Lift your head and you’ll enjoy some magnificent views and amazing alpine scenery in this short but pretty sharp race along the trails

Trail Woolybutt
The last part of this after you come off the steep lose fire trail is most definitely not dual direction as indicated here. Dont ride up it. There are signs so this should be clear. You can however ride up the fire trail part of woolybutt from the roadd but its very steep and loose (you will end up walking part of it i guantee) and watch riders coming down that missed the memo about trigger-happy.
In fact don't ride down this either. It sucks. Take the right turn where the signs are and ride a few hundred meters and take trigger happy. It now joins the burmy part of woolybutt and is now a one way descent. Its sick.

This is now a one way descent and has been rerouted to join the burms at the bottom of the Woolybutt (after the steep loose firetrail part) Its all just been redone and is awesome.
Unfortuently this means there's no way to ride back up and join medusa or other trails back to the village. The suggested route is to ride back to the village via the back gravel road which is ok but a little boring.
If you have an ebike with lots of battery to spare you can ride up the Woolybutt fire trail (don't ride up the Woolybutt single trail as this is super dangerous with riders depending at speed) at the road intersection but the first 300m are super steep and very loose. Once you get to where trigger-happy and Woolybutt meet its a lot easier to continue on the fire trail but watch for riders coming down. Its about 2klm to medusa of loose rock and very steep so without an ebike you've got no hope really.
While its great they've improved trigger-happy so much but its a real pain theres no way to really get back up. This means out and back to stonefly via medusa and misty twisty is no longer a viable option for non ebike riders without some walking you now have to basically descend the river trail or alpine epic to merimbah and get the shuttle up.

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