I have ridden on the Beechworth - Everton & Bright - Mytrleford sections of this trail. All credit to the management and maintenance staff responsible for the upkeep of the trail; its of a very high standard and represents an shining example to other municipal authorities on how to get it right. Recommended.

We started from Beechworth and the best part it the first 20km which is mainly downhill and well away from any roads. Some lovely bushland farms and a vineyard. Close to wangaratta it is less attractive but overall a great safe ride. The path up to Bright is also good but doesn't get away from the road in the same... More

We are not cyclists, here is our tip: get your old bike out of the shed, do the 'two car' thing, and do the ride (roll). The ride from Beechworth to Everton will take about 50 minutes (depends on how confident you are rolling downhill - could be shorter, or longer if you apply the brakes to slow down). We... More

Started at Beechworth on day 1. Rode via Wangaratta to Milawa, about 63 km's riding. Day two, Milawa to Myrtleford about 30 + km's and day three Myrtleford to Bright about 30 km's. The trip takes in all types of landscapes and things to do. Day one is mostly riding along the trail in bushland and then roads from Wang... More

While visiting Bright with friends I took a day out, rented a low step cycle from Cyclepath and biked from Bright to Myrtleford, (29kms) along the easy to ride rail trail, and back on a stunning day. The landscape of rolling hills, farmland including hop farms, vineyards, a wide variety of animals and birds, small towns, was a pleasure to... More

Finally we had our bikes serviced and set out on our first bike ride for many years. We only rode 10km on the rail trail from Beechworth as a first day trial. It was great. Flat sections and a couple of light grades up then down. It is well sign posted and the trail is generally smooth and free of... More

The Murray to Mountains trail is a nice and easy ride through some pretty parts of the Victorian countryside. Most of the trail is quite flat, so it is suitable for riders of all abilities. I rode my road bike with no problems as the whole trail is well maintained with a surprisingly good surface. There are however a number... More

We did the rail trail from Wangaratta. We stayed the first night in Beechworth which is a lovely little town. The ride to Beechworth has about 15km of uphill but it isn't a steep grade and I managed it with panniers and I am a not strong 59 year old cyclist. There are water stops on the way but they... More

Stopped for ice cream and sight seeing but still in Bright in time for the end of the Sunday session of live music at the brewery. Good rest at... More

I had a lovely time on the rail trail, and cycling around the region more generally. The only thing I don't quite understand is why all the write-ups seem to recommend going uphill - for logistical reasons I went down and it was lovely, I imagine in hot weather uphill would have been a nasty grind.
