The Dinner Plain to Mount Hotham shared trail will be the highest family friendly cycling trail in Australia. Commencing at Dinner Plain at an altitude of 1520 metres, the trail travels through the Alpine National Park and on to the Mount Hotham Alpine Resort at an approximate altitude of 1861 metres.
The project is a collaborative effort between the Alpine Shire Council, Parks Victoria and the Mount Hotham Alpine Resort Management Board. The trail is approximately 12 kilometres in length and passes through snowgum forest and alpine meadow. The Dinner Plain to Hotham share trail has been constructed along the winter cross country trail running between the two villages.
The project has been ongoing for almost ten years as the unique environmental and cultural qualities of this landscape have required careful management. It is anticipated the trail will be completed in preparation for Easter 2014.
The Dinner Plain to Hotham shared trail provides access to a range of additional walks and places of interest including Tabletop Mountain, Brandy Creek Mine, JB Plain and the Dead Timber Hill walk. More information on these activities is available through the Great Alpine Valleys website or the Visitor Information Centres.
