While the grandparents take a well paced walk, the grandkids and their parents can take a ride ahead, turn around and come back for us. Finish with a nice afternoon tea at Gracious Grace in Castella St. Precious family time.

The great part of the Lilydale to Warburton Trail is you can do a little at a time, or you can do a lot.
