Catching the shuttle is a convenient option which not only benefits you as the rider, but also the resort, as all shuttle fees go directly back into maintaining and creating new features along the trail.

Cascades Trail Review

“The Mountain bike trails at lake mountain are great as they can be ridden by all abilities, with green loops at the top of the mountain to the cascades trail into Marysville. Each track pushes you in different ways and I personally think that the Cascades Trail is one of the most underrated trails in Victoria.”

How hard is the Cascades trail? select-arrow

Cascades is defined as an intermediate trail with some advanced sections, but the ascents can be a challenge if you’re used to riding non-alpine trails. If you’re at all worried about the ascents, think about renting one of our e-bikes to flatten the rise.

How long does the Cascades trail take? select-arrow

Depending on your riding ability and alpine experience, but the average time is between 3 to 5 hours.

What should I bring if I’m riding Cascades? select-arrow

Always bring your own water as there is no potable water on the trail. We also strongly advise that you bring high energy snacks for a power boost along the way. Puncture kits are a must, plus warm and waterproof outwear in case the weather suddenly turns.

What’s the difference between the types of bikes you’ve got for hire? select-arrow

Our dual suspension bikes are for endurance and trail riders, our e-bike dual suspension bikes are great for those who want to ride the trails but might not have the endurance, plus we’ve got hard-tail bikes for those looking to tour our upper trails.

Where do I collect my rental bike from? select-arrow

All rental bikes are collected on-mountain except for the touring e-bikes in Marysville. For those riding Cascades, park your car in Marysville, catch the Shuttle up to the mountain, then drop the bike off at the Lake Mountain Visitors’ Centre in Marysville. Don’t forget to book your Shuttle seat before you come!
