    I've been Mountain biking for about 2 years, and was wondering if anyone knows some good trails around Dandenong.

    I've never been there, but from what i hear it shouldn't be to hard to find somewhere to ride.

    Some say its one of the best places around for mountain biking.

    have fun!

    isn't there a club down that way called 'bike users group' .....or something like that?

    Come to think of it isn't the fat tyre flyers also in the Dandenong area?

    hope this helps!

    cheers!

    Ian - I don't know of any mountains in the Dandenong area, nor any off road mountain type trails. But if you take the bike path out to Ferntree Gully, Belgrave, there are some beaut trails in the Dandenong Ranges. Sorry, I don't know exactly where they are, just heard of them from guys who use them.
    The steepest is a fire trail, I think, which starts somewhere near the T.V. tower/s. What about if you ask at Ian Brown's bike shop in Dandenong, they might know.

    There is a good path, starts at the bridge over the creek in
    Hammond Rd., and heads out to Carrum. Hard fine gravel. Food shop there. Fairly flat, this path is a good, fast ride, as it
    follows the creek.

    What about Abbots Rd, which runs from Frkstn - Dnong Rd to
    the Sth Gippy Hwy. By the bridge over the creek, or main drain, there are grassed ridges, where the drain has been dredged in years past. We need to have these ridges opened up for public use i.e. off-road bikes.  Let's hear of your explorations, huh? Cheers.

    The Warburton  Rail Trail is a really good ride. Suits both road and mtb's. No hills, gentle gradients. You can choose your starting point from the Melways. This path is shared with
    walkers, joggers and horses.
