Review:
Another location that's benefited from the love and attention of Dirt Art is Mount Taylor, 15 minutes north of Bairnsdale. Like Colquhoun, locals have been maintaining Mount Taylor for years, but with support from the DSE Mount Taylor has been reworked and relaunched as a prime downhill location.
 
Gippsland Mountain Bike Club held a grand opening for Mount Taylor in 2012 and it's since played hot to a round of the Victorian Downhill Series. Whilst the revived 'Double Black Diamond' downhill course, with features such as the 'Dirt Art Monster Double', is not for the faint hearted - B and C lines exist for those who want it give it a go.
 
There are also XC options at Mount Taylor if you prefer.

Located 14km north of Bairnsdale, the Mt Taylor MTB Trails offer a double black diamond downhill experience, with fast corners, big jumps, loose rocks and 300m of vertical descent. There is also a single black diamond cross country course, which has some good climbs and undulating fast flowing single track.
 
The Mt Taylor MTB Trails have recently been revived to survive through the combined efforts of Gippsland MTB Inc and the Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE), who have refined the trails to create a maximum riding experience.
