Lysterfield

Located in Melbourne's eastern suburbs, Lysterfield boasts over 20km of trails.  Family friendly riding may be found close to the lake shore on the access roads.  A range of flowing trails may be followed around the lake.  These tracks are intermediate level with some log obstacles and tree roots.  The trail surface is mostly sandy, you won't find many rocks.  The elevation gains are moderate.  Lysterfield is also home to the 6.3 km state mountain bike course, built for the 2006 Commonwealth games.  This challenging trail will test your technical skills and aerobic capacity.  There are uphill rock gardens and fast descents.  Enjoy a coffee at the café within the park.
