Railway Reserves Heritage Trail is a 41km, grade 1 Circuit hike located in Perth Hills Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2 days to complete.

Summary

Railway Reserves Heritage Trail follows the route of the old Eastern Railway and is unique in providing a 41 kilometre loop entirely on railway formations. This extensive trail passes through quaint hills communities including Darlington, Parkerville and Mundaring, and covers a wide range of terrains with scenic views and numerous points of historical and natural significance.

Attractions include the old railway line and tunnel in John Forrest National Park along with great views and waterfalls (particularly in winter/spring).  Other features include Mundaring Sculpture Park, the Goldfields pipeline, wineries and tea-rooms. The trail spans from Bellevue to Wooroloo in the Perth Hills and can be joined at numerous access points including the towns along its length. Many of the reserves are now community parks providing picnic tables, toilets and other facilities. Local pubs and cafes are abundant in the area and well worth the stop. The whole trail is approximately 59 kilometres long and can be done in short, half day to day sections or over the course of several days.  The more popular loop trail, combining the “Northern Section”” and the “”Southern Section”” is approximately 41 kilometres and can be completed in a similar time frame
