Officially opened in March of this year, the Indigo Epic is a new All Mountain single track mountain biking trail connecting the vibrant historic towns of Beechworth and Yackandandah.

Built to an intermediate blue rating, this incredible mountain bike trail offers something for everyone, packed full of features and running through some of the most spectacular scenery in Victoria’s High Country. Better yet, it’s open year-round meaning you can plan your trip to Yackandandah whenever you like. After some recent maintenance on a few sections, the whole trail is now ridable in its entirety. 

The Indigo Epic has been constructed as a figure-of-eight or helix loop shape, meaning you can ride the whole trail, or just the Beechworth or Yackandandah loops separately. If riding the entire 56km network, the Indigo Epic is a full day adventure trail so make sure you’re prepared before setting out and ride within your limits. 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🌿
