Explore the most popular Mountain Biking trails in Victoria with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

I followed the map for this hike, which is slightly inaccurate around the golf course. Follow the directions listed, not the map, and you'll be fine.

Nice fairly flat walk. Lots of kangaroos

nice walk. wide paths but most of the walk is unshaded.

Gravelly and dirt roads. Hot and dry conditions even on a cooler day. There are ammenties but feel be dicey. Remember to take a snake bandage, phone and water. Also let someone know. Comfortable road shoes can suffice.

Nice walk, good mix of terrain with a few challenging hills. Nice scenery. Not many signposts but it was fine to follow via the app. There was some walking on roads but the roads didn't have much traffic.

Great shared trail that is well maintained. Enjoyed a coffee at Boollara before the return leg. Interesting history markers along the way, with various benches and picnic spots to rest if required. Pretty spent after 25kms but a great stretch.

A really poor trail unless you like walking or riding beside a heavily trafficked multi lane major commercial access road for most of the way.

Lovely riding trail with a variety of surroundings. Regular water fountains and a few coffee places where one can stop. Nothing difficult or dangerous, but the stairs at Gipps Street / Collins Bridge are unpleasant. The trail is mostly well signposted, except at a few locations. Earle Orenstein's post lists some of them. All in all, very enjoyable. I did it clockwise.

I did the hike today with my two girls - a two year old and four year old. We blitz it and it was pretty casual. It’s easy to get too with a 4wd but could be accessed with a 2wd small car from the gravel road (which can actually be a bit bumpy). I enjoyed the walk, steep parts at times. The trail has obviously had a lot of motorbikes/ mountain bikers use it. There was no one there and it felt fairly isolated. Good day out overall. It would be helpful to have some signage.

Love it - our regular soft trek. Don’t go on the bike tracks- there are dedicated walking tracks as well. Granite peak is a great walk. Not a serious hike but a great walk for the bush and the kangaroos and wallabies...

Lovely day amazing clear views no one here but me. So many tracks easy to take the wrong turn. App map assisted to keep on track or directed which way to head. Wouldn't consider hard as rated

This was a fantastic 12km walk (but it is signposted as 10km). Took us 3.5 hours and led us through many interested vegetation changes. We did it anticlockwise which I think was better as the eventual slope up to the ridge top was more gradual. There was no water at the falls but still a pretty spot. Lots of flowers out and lots of orchids. Best walk I've done in ages.

excellent walk with lots of great views and options to extend or shorten you walk as you please. dogs off leash are permitted. definitely a snake area in summer though so beware.

Beautiful and fairly easy if you are fit. Could do with kids as a one way day adventure (return might push most kids endurance and sense of adventure

Note that most of these tracks are one direction mountain bike trails - hikers aren't allowed for a simple reason: it's dangerous for the hiker and the riders. Don't risk being hit by a mountain bike travelling at 40km/h and stick to the shared or hiker only tracks. That said Lysterfield is world class for both hiking and mountain biking.

Nice walk with the dog. Unfortunately the small side trails are heavily overgrown. Main tracks are in perfect condition. Just avoid the small ones and you are fine. Enough options to take. When staying on the proper tracks it’s a nice walking area with the dog. Could image going for a trail run here as well.

Boring walk up boring walk back

A pretty trail with mainly good surfaces for both riding and hiking.
