Why I Love the Cascade Trails

1 min
Kim Raymond January 11th, 2022

My favourite mountain bike track at Lake Mountain is Cascades trail, more specifically the Summit section and the Red Hill section. When I first started riding at Lake Mountain I found it quite challenging, as the upper sections of trails back in 2021 were quite rocky and technical. These days there are a variety of trail options, from riding the ski trails, a couple of beginner friendly tracks, and the Cascades trail.

While the full Cascades trail can be quite challenging, it is a really great adventure ride. If you’re a lower level rider you can just ride parts of it. Intermediate riders can choose “B-lines” or walk challenging obstacles and advanced riders can hit everything hard and fast – so it really is a great all rounder.

I often recommend my friends visit Lake Mountain, especially if they haven’t ridden there before, as well as encourage anyone coming through the Murrindindi Shire to ride their bikes there.

Preparing for a big day

Dress for a change in the weather

The weather can change quickly in the mountains. Always bring a warm layer and something waterproof. In the warmer months, the mountains can be a great escape from the heat. Lake Mountain Alpine Resort can be 10 degrees cooler than Marysville.

Pack some essentials

There is plenty to keep you and your family entertained on our little mountain. It is always a great idea to pack some essentials for your day like water, sunscreen, and snacks. Please check our website for the bistro opening hours.

Make a plan

When visiting any alpine resort in Victoria, it's always a great idea to think ahead and be prepared for any conditions that may arise during your visit. Check the weather for the area you are visiting and check the fire danger rating for the place you are going to be driving through and exploring. https://www.cfa.vic.gov.au/warnings-restrictions/total-fire-bans-and-ratings
