Lake Mountain is popular for both mountain biking and road cycling over the warmer months. With over 30kms of shared mountain bike trails and the new 28km single track masterpiece, ‘Cascades’, that runs from the resort all the way down to Marysville, there’s plenty of terrain to suit all ages and ability levels. A shuttle to take you from Marysville to the top at the resort operates most weekends generally from November to Easter and daily during the Summer school holidays. A trail map for ‘Cascades’ can be found here and for the Home Trails can be found here
The 21km road ascent from Marysville is a challenging and scenic way to cycle into the cooler air, going from around 450 metres to over 1300 metres altitude.
Nearby towns, off the mountain, offering great options for accommodation and many other services are Marysville, Buxton and Narbethong.
