Review:
Once complete, Mt Buller’s cross country trail network will be graded into three levels; easy, intermediate and advanced. As with the downhill trails, the grading will indicate increased technical difficulty, but on XC trails it will also reflect the longer distances, remoteness and stamina levels required to complete the trail.
 
Stage one of Mt Buller’s trail network is almost complete and it consists of ‘intermediate’ level trails. Stage two will be the ‘easy’ trails while stage three will include more remote trails. The intermediate trails are no walk in the park. They start easily enough with Gang Gangs, which flows nicely and eases you into the ride as it descends from the village. You then link across to the equally cruisy Picnic Trail.
 
From there the trails get tougher as the Corn Hill trail throws numerous steep uphill switchbacks at you. Corn Hill can be ridden as a loop that returns to the Picnic Trail on a fun singletrack descent or used to take you further a field to Misty Twisty and Silk Lane. Misty Twisty descends through twisted snow gums with berm after berm on almost every corner.
