Stage 02 Opens
13 December 2018
The Wild Mersey mountain bike network has more than doubled in size with the opening of 16 kilometres of trails this week that connect Latrobe and Railton and extend in to the Railton hills.
A pump track, family-friendly loop from Goliath Park and a cross-country connection between the two trail heads have been added in the $4.1M Wild Mersey development which first opened in Latrobe’s Warrawee Reserve last December.
There are now 32 kilometres of trails open for riding and planning is well underway to continue the trail network on to Sheffield and up around the Badgers Range.
Mountain bikers are coming from across the region and state to ride Wild Mersey and as the number of trails grows, so does the interest in the trail network from mainland and overseas visitors.
The latest trails were built by Trailscapes with the Mersey River bridge link designed and installed by Latrobe-based business, BridgePro. Riders can start and/or finish in either Railton or Latrobe to experience stages one and two of the Wild Mersey mountain bike network. The new Railton trail head is located at Goliath Park on Ramsay Road, Railton.
