Summer is just around the corner and that can only mean one thing in the Alpine region: it’s time to pack away those skis and bring out the hiking boots or mountain bike ’cause Mount Buller’s stunning mountain trails are progressively reopening.
The mountain crew have been dutifully cleaning and clearing away any leftovers from winter on the vast trail network for what is expected to be a huge summer, meaning adventurers will have ample pristine nature to explore.
Serious mountain bike riders will be relieved to hear the world-class cross-country and gravity trails at Mount Buller will all be accessible from November 3rd, while the full network will reopen by December 5th. From the legendary 40km Australian Alpine Epic trail to the beginner “Billy Buttons” track in the Mount Buller village, all trails all fair game – and best of all, still free to use.
If a quiet amble through the alpine trees is more your thing, don’t worry, Buller’s got something for you too. You could try the Summit Nature Walk, winding your way through a glade of snow gums to a rather Kodak-worthy view. Or perhaps a tranquil walk following the Delatite River up through lush mountain ash forests.
Trails at Mount Stirling are also reopening to the public, so walkers can experience views of the regions without interruption. If that isn’t the perfect lockdown antidote, we don’t know what is.
