Alpine Community Plantation is thrilled to announce Dirt Art as the successful contractor for the design and construction of Mystic MTB Parks most exciting trail project to date – the Hero Trail as part of the Alpine Events Park project.

Dirt Art were successful against a strong field of contractors from across Australia. They are a world leader in mountain bike trail design, consultancy and construction and bring with them a wealth of experience in delivering high quality innovative trail and a commitment to working with the local community.

Dirt Art will hit the ground running and will be in Bright in early August to deliver consultation sessions with our project partners Alpine Cycling Club and HVP Plantations. These sessions will inform the design of the trail, including: where the trail will start, what sort of features will be included and how best to use the landscape to ensure the trail is sustainable.

The delivery of the Hero Trail is stage one of the Alpine Events Park project and the beginning of an exciting period for the Alpine Shire. Construction of the trail is expected to be completed by January 2017, ready for the summer tourist and event season.

The Alpine Events Park is funded by the Alpine Shire Council and the Australian Government as part of the National Stronger Regions Fund. When completed the Alpine Events Park will bring economic benefit to the region through the attraction of large-scale event activity and additional visitors to the region each year.
