The Sidle 73 MTB track connects the Cave Stream campground on the Broken River Ski Field access road with the Craigieburn Ski Field access road, avoiding 1.5km of tarmac on State Highway 73. The track begins at the Cave Stream Picnic area and ends on the Craigieburn Valley Ski Field Road. In part the trail uses an old 4WD track and has been constructed as a walking and biking track of intermediate grade.
