This project is an opportunity to build on the current 12km of mountain bike trails in the Mornington Peninsula/Arthurs Seat area. This will improve trail connectivity and expand the existing network, helping to meet the increasing demand as mountain bike riders are now the most prolific users of Arthurs Seat State Park. The new trails will cater for all riders, ranging from families and recreational riders to more experienced, technical mountain bike riders, with a variety of trail grade options (beginner, intermediate and advanced) in accordance with the International Mountain Bicycling Association (IMBA) standards.
Mountain bike riding is a great way to connect family and friends, experience the natural environment, whilst improving physical and mental health. It is an outdoor, year-round activity that can be enjoyed alone or in a group, by children and families, women and men, recreational riders and elite competitors. The expansion of the trail network will provide opportunities for increased participation, whilst reducing trail congestion and improve the user experience. It will also reduce the risk of illegal and unsafe trails within the park, contributing to environmental sustainability. This meets with Parks Victoria's philosophy of Healthy Parks, Healthy People.
