Technical Grade: Beginner/Intermediate

Distance: 10km loop

Riding Time: 1.5 hours

Gradient: Don’t be fooled by the 2% Strava gradient – the climb is punctuated by some great technical climbing and natural obstacles that make this a great challenge at speed.

Fitness: Medium endurance

Location: A quick 5 km spin down the Rail Trail from Beechworth towards Everton finds you at the old Baarmutha railway station site and carpark – and the beginning of the Flame Trees loop. Alternatively its a short drive from town down Diffey Road to the rail trail crossing and carpark.

Description: Designed to be ridden in a clockwise fashion, the trail begins with a sprint in open grassland before entering the trees and gradually descending. While suitable for the entry level rider, the combination of rocks and multiple gradient changes pose a challenge for the more accomplished rider wanting to lay down a fast lap. Multiple short but technical descents into the shaded gullies beside the rail trail are followed by snaking switchbacked climbs.

There’s a fast snaking run-out that marks the end of the downhill – a quick right hand around a knoll and across the rail trail and you’re at the beginning of the uphill leg. Towards the top of the climb the trail snakes on and off the rail trail before finishing on the open grass plain that marked the beginning of the loop.
