Starting at the Picnic Table this fun and challenging ride is downhill all the way! Take care on the first steep section. Popular with other uses, so always try to ride at a safe and controlled speed and yield to horses and bushwalkers. Please take extra care at raised log bridges.

For alternative/easier access for beginner and intermediate riders enter via Box Corner off the Mt Buller Tourist Road.

Serviced by the All Terrain Cycles Mirimbah - Mt Buller shuttle, pre-book your tickets here: https://allterraincycles.rezdy.com/catalog/293198/mt-buller-shuttles

NOTE: damage to one of the log crossings makes it unavoidable that riders will need to cross the Delatite River on foot. Please note that this may be more difficult at times of high river levels, notably after large rainfall events. Please proceed with caution.

       This is a great, mostly downhill back country ride that can be shuttled using the folk at Mirimibah. The top section is pretty steep and loose and not very enjoyable. This can be pleasantly be avoided by starting at Box Corner. If doing this, it is really a green trail. It is mostly double track, except for the log bridges which need a bit of care but are not difficult.
