We chose the Wangaratta to Milawa section of the Trail as it was the flatest. We are not seasoned bike riders but this was a great path. In total we completed over 40klms return trip which was relatively easy going for us. Some lovely country side. You could also walk sections of the Trail. A really good fun activity for the whole family just pick which section and how experienced you are at riding. We will do another section some time in the future.

Great bike path, suitable for mountain bikes. We rode from Wangarrata to Gapsted (50k and virtually all up hill) We virtually had the trail to ourselves only seeing maybe 10 people all day. The path in most parts is long and straight taking you mainly through fields, so not the best views but a defiant challenge for the final 10k climbing to 350 mtrs.

This trail is one of the best in the country, amazing scenery, great facilities along the way, The trail surface is excellent. It is a great challenge, and a very rewarding experience to ride the whole trail, but also can be done in stages. Saddle up and go for it.

All of the comments about the quality and beauty of this trail we found true. Breathtaking views of the country side and snow capped mountains. It’s pretty much all downhill from Beechworth to Everton and took us just over an hour. We were a little unprepared for the 12km climb from Everton to Taylor’s Gap about 3km from Gapsted Wines. There are no rest stops until Taylor’s Gap and it’s all uphill with no coasting breaks. It took two fit seniors 2 hours to make the trip from Everton to Gapsted. We’re sure more regular bikers would not find it a challenge but children and social riders be prepared 😊 The lunch at Gapsted was superb as was they Bus and Bike return to Beechworth!

Constructed on a former narrow range rail line this track starts in the centre of Wangaratta, leads through some flood plains before splitting. The more remote, steeper but shorter part up to Beechworth winds up throu beautiful eucalyptus bush and old goldfields. The longer part up to Bright then more or less follows the scenic Ovens Valley with plenty of opportunity to stop at wineries, coffees and small towns. Great activity at any time of the year! Down from Beechworth is pure fun!
