A quick glimpse into the construction of the latest trail at Mt Buller, The Epic. When complete, the trail will take you from the Mt Buller Village, out to the top of Mt Stirling, down and along the Razorback Spur, wrap around the Pinnacle and take you back along the Delatite river to Mirimbah. The 42km trail showcases the amazing terrain and stunning vistas that make this area of the country so special. With the last descent being 8kms, it truly is an Epic Trail.

The team at Mt Buller will open Gang Gangs, Picnic Trail, Silk Lane, Misty Twist, River Spur, Delatite River Trail, Corn Hill, Copperhead, Snowgums and Splitrock  this weekend. Stonefly and the Village Family Trail will remain closed for now as they still have some snow cover, but with the weather warming up, it won't be long before we're all back on the hill enjoying everything there is to offer.

Construction Begins in Tasmania's Northeast
Apr 07 2014

World Trail's Ryan De La Rue, fresh from the summer construction of the IMBA Epic Trail at Mt Buller, has donned his woolly hat and lead his team into the Tasmanian wilderness to begin construction of what will become one the largest mountain bike trail networks in Australia.

Ranging between Derby and Weldborough in Tasmania's northeast, the (anticipated) 80km of brand new, dedicated singeltrack will traverse rugged mountains, ancient forrests and remote waterfalls. Once a thriving tin mining area, the trails will take riders on a historic journey past discarded mining relics and moss covered, century old mining remnants.

Construction will be gradually ramped up, with the first of several large loops to be opened later this year, and a significant amount of brand new trail to be finished in time for the iconic Blue Dragon MTB race early in 2015.

Buller Bump Out
Mar 30 2014

The summer construction season has ended at Mt Buller for 2013/14, with all the ducks now lined up in a row for the opening of the so-called 'IMBA Epic' trail in November this year. 

 
As many as three World Trail teams worked tirelessly on the project, each fully equipped with their own excavator and experienced trail crew, to deliver what is one of the most exciting trail offerings ever constructed in Victoria.
 
The World Trail crew were so chuffed with what they’d built, they used the “we’re bedding it in” excuse to ride the trail every day on their way to work! It all made for a very happy bunch of trail builders. You’ll see why when your turn comes after the trail is opened in November 2014.

Smithfield Downhill
Sep 13 2013

World Trail's downhill trail crew, led by Rhys Atkinson, has started construction on the 2014 World Cup Downhill track, high above Smithfield, Cairns. The trail will drop steeply off the Macalister Range and feature super technical rock gardens, stacked berms and large, steep, fast, off camber boulders and jagged rock ledges. Not for the faint hearted, the Cairns World Cup Downhill course is going to ensure that the event will be a higlight on the MTB calendar for 2014. If you haven't already, book your ticket! 

 

Atherton Flow-Down
Jun 05 2013

  The World Trail team has landed back onto the volcanic tableands, to a town called Atherton. Late last year the trail crew constructed a 7klm loop, named "Ridgy Didge", and the responce was so positive, a contract for the next stage was rolled onto our team to deliver another iconic style trail for the region. Construction started last week on an All Mountain trail with Downhill B-Lines, with delivery expected by late June.


Falls Creek Construction
Mar 17 2013

 The long awaited trail systems planned for Falls Creek, in Victoria are now rolling along at full steam. The trail crew on the highland resort are busy designing, constructing and shaping a bunch of trails with spectacular scenery and lookouts close to the village centre.

This stage which is expected to be complete by late April, early May, will showcase new trail layouts, featuring large boulder slabs, iconic snowgum forests and lush green grass fields throughout the high country destination.
