Cycling the Churchill National Park

Posted on Updated on

The Churchill National Park is located 30 km’s South-east of Melbourne and joins onto Lysterfield Park.  This 271 Hectare National Park offers a quiet environment to ride with a variety of Fire trails which are great to hike and cycle around.  All of the trails are quite wide and are suitable to ride on a Mountain or CX bike.  A number of the climbs have loose gravel and offer little in the way of traction.  Combined with the fact that the climbs throughout the park are extremely steep.  You will require a certain level of fitness to circumnavigate the park.

Most of the trails link up to one another and you won’t risk getting lost.
