The Big Hill MTB Park will test your climbing legs and your descending skills.
The town of Mount Beauty in the Kiewa Valley, nestled at the foot of Mount Bogong. The town lies alongside the Kiewa River, at the junction of the Kiewa Valley Highway and Bogong High Plains Road.
Mount Beauty is the home town of Cross Country mountain biking in Australia. The National championships where held there for many many years in a row and they also have Survey Track which was the first legalised dual use train in Australia allowing MTB's on single track. The park at Mount Beauty has continued to grow its trail network and in recent years the club has stepped it up again with train signs for all trails, 3 of loops marked and all their trails on the Trail Forks apps. This place is the BOMB.
So the course that has been set is going to be a rippa. Its 4.9kms and 145 HM per lap so expect similar lap numbers to the Lysterfield round. The climb undulates up to "The Hot Track" otherwise knows as a rather open fire trail that then will link you onto Harrys track, Traverse and then Bananarama where you are sure to be hooting and hollering the whole way down. Damn it I will be! Please note the course below is the course for start group 1. The club has decided and we think its a good idea that start group 2 will be a bit more technical so we will distribute the map when it comes in.
