The Australian Alpine Epic Trail is the first IMBA accredited Epic trail in the Southern Hemisphere, offering a 40km ride that descends over 1,600 metres from the top of Mt Buller (one of the most popular alpine resorts in the country) down into the surrounding valley. Tough and exhilarating, it takes riders on a truly unique journey travelling through snowgum woodlands that exist nowhere else in the world, to treeless alpine summits, dropping off into cool ferny glades surrounded by granite monoliths, and finishing alongside a crystal clear mountain stream.

 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.
