Ride Falls Creek to Mt Beauty via a selection of long distance touring trails.
For the serious mountain biker it doesn't get any better than a long distance trek, bush bashing and rock hopping along the way. A range of long distance trails head out from Falls Creek for the one-way journey to Mt Beauty (and one toward Omeo). Keep in mind these trails cover significant distance (around 30km - 40km+) and take on extreme terrain and trails that are not often cleared or maintained. For this reason they should only be attempted by experienced and prepared riders.
