This is the longest trail in the network and is filled with jumps, berms, log drops and loads of exhilarating fast single track. It includes the famous spider gully, which starts with a series of tight corners weaving through tall tree ferns before opening out and increasing in speed as it descends. This trail finishes back at the car park.

Access Info

From Melbourne, follow the Maroondah Highway to Buxton. Turn left onto Dyes Lane and follow the road for approximately 1 km. Cross the Acheron River and turn right to reach the trailhead and day visitor area. All trails are closed during the wetter months each year from the Tuesday after Queens Birthday weekend in June and re-open at the beginning of the September / October school holidays. This is to protect the track surface from erosion.
