A shared walking – mountain bike trail, the Goldfields Track (part of the Great Dividing Trail) offers a unique riding experience. The trail stretches from Ballarat to Bendigo and is signed along its entire length. Works are currently underway to improve mountain biking at a couple of locations – until these are finished, avoid Mount Alexander and Breakneck Gorge between Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. A popular ride, which featured in “Australian Mountain Bike” magazines Top 10 trails is the 40km (approx) Hepburn Springs to Castlemaine section (one way – best ridden in that direction) – the trail includes some fire trail climbs, sweet flowing single track, historic sites and even a swim at Vaughan Springs. More information on the Great Dividing Trail/Goldfields Track is available from theGreat Dividing Trail Association Website.
