I regularly take this trail for exercise with friends and also to exercise the dog 🐕. It provides a variety of gentle grades and scenery away from the bustle of traffic in adjoining suburbia.

The best part of this 18 kilometre rail trail is in the 'Shenley' area of inner eastern Melbourne, which is an old station name from the days of the now largely closed Outer Circle Railway.
