We had a fun sunny day trying to find the source of Merri Creek (rumoured to come from a spring that makes your beard grow full and lush). We never found it but found many a surprise (and coffee) on the way.

This trail forms part of the Capital Bike Trail and is well signposted and has many access points. We took this ride on a Sunday and it wasn't very crowded.

Beautiful place for a stroll or a bike ride along the creek. The path is full of lots of great places to stop for a picnic as well. Unfortunately there arnt nearly enough barbecues along the trail :(

Even on a mild sunday this trail is not busy and it's hard to understand why as it is very scenic. We caught number 19 tram to stop 38 at Coburg Lake and walked all the way back to Melbourne frome there. 13 kms. All off road but on paved surface. Lovely. And on the way detour past Ceres community... More

The Merri Creek is a major tributary of the Yarra River. They join eachother just above Dights Falls in Abbotsford. The trail runs along a green corridor threading its way through suburban Melbourne. Its great for walkers and cyclist alike. Along the route are information panels about the local flora and fauna, plus others describing places of Aboriginal significance. It... More

Having just cycled the trail for the first time in a long time, it is great to see that is clean and well maintained. The path connects into the main Yarra Trail so you can ride all the way into the city. There is one section in Richmond where you need to carry your bike up two flights of stairs,... More
