Grab Your Helmet And Go: You Yangs By Mountain Bike

50 kilometres of track across 2 sites only a few minutes from Lara. Mountain Biking the You Yangs is a wonderful adventure close to nature but close to town.

The Kurrajong Plantation is fairly flat and relatively easy to negotiate – a perfect introduction to mountain bike riding. The Great Circle Drive is a 12 km track taking in the scenic areas of the You Yangs Regional Park with some climbs and steep descents, so take care. It’s a shared track so beware of vehicles.

The Stockyards area is a touch more serious and is where most of the tracks start and finish. Clearly signposted to avoid any lost riders or beginners straying out of their depth, there’s a full range of tracks from beginners to very difficult. Cross country and downhill tracks incorporate fast runs, ramps and rock gardens.


Mountain biking is a great combination of nature and adrenaline – tracks are interesting and challenging and set in some absolutely beautiful surrounds with the freshest air. Your heart will beat faster for all the right reasons.
