Torbay to Elleker Rail Trail is a 8km, grade 3 One Way hike located in Regional Western Australia Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

This route includes the recently opened Torbay Rail Trail which spans Elleker to Torbay Hall.

There is a bit of extra trail added onto both ends to stretch it out a bit.
Even though it spans only 8km, the Rail Rail is flat and very diverse with karri, sheok and paperbark all showing their wares.
This trail has the future potential to be extended towards Denmark along the old railway route.
Here it will link up with the Denmark to Nornalup Rail Trail, which is on the same former railway corridor.

Sections of this trail are also on the Mundi Biddi Trail.

The Denmark to Nornalup Railtrail is also on the same old railway alignment as this trail.  It can be accessed at Denmark, which is approx 20km west of Torbay via the Lower Denmark Rd and South Coast Highway.
