It's a pleasant ride or stroll along a well-defined pedestrian/cyclist path. It's great for locals to enjoy a stress-free outing. However, I wouldn't recommend overseas travellers who have a tight schedule or who can find similar trails at home.

We did this cycle trail a few years back and really enjoyed it so thought we would try it again. Like the true pioneers we are we decided to do it clockwise this time. Big mistake, as the signage is close to non-existent. Last time...More

It is a great route, with easy grades, well made paths, occasional shade trees and seats and some rare water sources. However, there are no toilets along the route. A pleasant walk or cycle and well connected to major roads, where there is food and...More

I love to walk so I walked this trail although a lot of people cycle it. Lovely bush scenery along the Yarra and plenty of places to stop and relax if the weather is nice. It’s pretty flat most of the way. The signage in...More
