About these trails

The Buxton Trails network sits within the Black Range State Forest, approximately 100km north-east of Melbourne.

The network has sections of ascending trail followed by fast flowing descents. When ridden with care, most trails are suitable for all skill levels. The Platypus circuit, looping out from the trailhead, is ideal for young children and those new to mountain biking. If you’re looking for more of a challenge, riding the tracks at speed will provide exhilaration and thrills.
