An extra 16kms of trail opened as part of the Wild Mersey Mountain Bike network on June 15, 2019 almost doubling the size of the trails available.
Stage 2 of the $4.1 million network officially opens on Saturday 15 June mainly providing an easy graded trail designed to connect the Warrawee Mountain Bike Park with Railton, where a new pump track has been constructed.
The new trails constructed are:
- Railton Express - a 9.75km two-way, shared cross-country link between the Railton and Latrobe trail hubs. Flows along the riverside, around forest plantations and features 22 switchbacks to help you over the mid-way hill. Start or finish in Railton township.
- Green Hornet - a 2km single-track downhill through the eucalypts like a funfair ride featuring many berms and rollers. Watch for the sting in the tail!
- Teleport - A 3km single-track climb to teleport you through the forest up to the start of Green Hornet.
- Sheffield Way - heading towards stage 3 of Wild Mersey, this 1km two-way track will be the link to Sheffield and beyond. Closed at New Bed Road until stage 3 is ready to ride.
An amenties block complete with showers and bike wash down facilities has also been constructed at the Railton trailhead.
