Trail Running

If you enjoy running, you will love the trails surrounding Porepunkah. The high country offers trails to suit every level of fitness and experience.  Mt Buffalo is on our doorstep, and has some unique runs that provides you with spectacular views along the way.

 

 

Mount Buffalo, the Great Granite Plateau provides three unique and interesting runs for those looking for something a little different. The three trails explore very different parts of this boulder laced environment: the green route takes in technical single track that plunges down past the boulder filled underground river to climb back up and emerge on the edge of the plateau for some great views; the blue route takes in Lake Catani before threading in and under the giant boulders of the Chalwell Galleries and the black route takes the runner further afield, linking together some of the plateaus hidden plains and iconic locations, such as the Giant’s Causeway, Stanley Rock and Og, Gog and Magog.

Test and build your stamina on a series of 21 colour-coded runs covering more than 200 kilometres through the 7 Peaks of Victoria – Mt Baw Baw, Mount Buffalo, Mt Buller, Dinner Plain, Falls Creek, Hotham and Lake Mountain, with a trail to suit all levels. With over 200km of mapped running trails, there’s a course to suit every level of fitness and experience.
