  • Designs underway for an ‘EPIC’ mountain bike trail in Melrose

    Monday, 19 October 2020

    Concept designs for an international-standard mountain bike trail around Mount Remarkable are now underway.

    This is one of the key projects for the Southern Flinders Precinct with trail design experts World Trail coming on board to undertake concept work.

    This mountain bike loop will be built to a standard which will be sensitive to the environment and deliver exceptional views, a great experience and a sense of adventure to riders. The trail will be assessed by the International Mountain Biking Association with the view to gain ‘EPIC’ accreditation, which will attract mountain bike enthusiasts from all over Australia and the world to the region.

    World Trail are one of the largest and most experienced mountain biking trail companies in the world and have designed, planned and constructed hundreds of projects in 20 countries  – including Australia’s well-known Blue Derby trail network.

    In addition to designing the loop in Mount Remarkable, World Trail will also assess the potential for other cycling opportunities in the Southern Flinders Ranges, including any downhill trails.
