With a backdrop of mountains including Yarra Ranges National Park this trail passes through a scenic landscape following the Yarra River Valley.

Plenty of good places to stay and great things to consume in the region’s cafes, pubs, wineries and restaurants.
The trail has a climb up to Mt Evelyn from both directions.
There are still some crossings of busy roads remaining requiring care and patience.

There is strong community support to extend this rail trail to Yarra Glen, refer future developments below.

Pedal Assist E-bikes and Comfort Hybrid bikes for hire and great food on the rail trail at Warburton.
