Falls Creek’s backcountry trails provide amazing riding across the top of Victoria. Breathtaking scenery. Adventurous spirit. Fainters Track riders enjoy a Blue Dirt Shuttle from Mt Beauty Bakery back to Falls Creek. Shuttle departs Mt Beauty 1.30pm to get you back to the resort by 2.30-3:00pm – enough time for more riding or relax with a beer in front of the fire pit. Riders need to be self sufficient > ride packs, food, spares, water, tubes, etc. All social rides will have a ride co-ordinator (sweep rider). Maps will be provided for all riders so they can ride at their own pace.
