    Limberlost Trail Bike Visitor Area Situated between Powelltown and Noojee, Limberlost Trail Bike Visitor is central to a large network of forest roads and tracks ideal for trail bike riding and provides riders with a range of facilities to make either end of a ride more enjoyable. It is easily accessed via sealed roads from either the Yarra Valley or West Gippsland.

    Location and Access From Melbourne, follow the Warburton Hwy to Yarra Junction and turn right at the traffic lights in the town centre and continue for 30kms on this road, via Powelltown, to reach Limberlost Trail Bike Visitor area. If you are travelling on the Princes Hwy, take the Mt Baw Baw exit and follow the signs leading through Neerim South and Neerim Junction towards Noojee. Turn left at the bottom of the large hill north of Neerim Junction, following the sign for Yarra Junction. A further 23kms will bring you to Limberlost Trail Bike Visitor Area. What facilities are provided? Facilities include: • Large parking bays accommodating both vehicles

    and trailers. • A unisex toilet. • Large shelter. • Information board. • Signposted riding routes. • Picnic tables and seats Riding Routes & Safety Information • Latrobe 45kms - Varied track conditions,

    several sections of gravel road. Hills become slippery following rain. Interesting terrain passing through Messmate and Peppermint Trees alongside pristine creeks.

    tracks, some rocky sections, red dirt tracks, a few steep ascents and descents. Some long sections of gravel road. Traverses through Yarra

    State Forest with Mountain Ash and temperate rainforest.

    • All roads and tracks, including the signposted

    riding routes, are two-way and open to other vehicles.

    Ride for Tomorrow Trail bike riding is great fun, but just so you don’t spoil the fun of others who come to use the forests, please note the following. Respect the Environment - Respect Others

    DSE and VicRoads have developed some new signs to indicate noise sensitive areas where riders should ride more slowly and quietly. Obeying these signs is voluntary (ie. not a legal requirement), but if riders ride slowly and quietly in these areas, it will help keep the peace and be greatly appreciated by other forest users and nearby residents • Refer to map overleaf for key

    sensitive areas

    • Riders must be licensed - motorcycles must be registered

    • Ride Legal - Stay on Forest Roads • Take your litter home For more information The Department of Sustainability and Environment (DSE) is responsible for managing Victoria's State Forest.
