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.

The murray to mountain website does live up to its promise. Just don't go in summer... the heat is immense and the scenery is just yellow and dry.

The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is a beautiful place to cycle! We rented bikes in Bright and thoroughly enjoyed our ride towards Myrtleford, stopping to enjoy the local vineyards and rural sights. We shared the smooth pathway with other bikes, including families with small children, and even two elderly people in motorised wheelchairs. On our way back, we stopped... More

If you are in Wang and have a few hours and want to exercise please take your bicycle or hire one and do the trail ride. I have riden the trail many times, with my kids, on a long journey to Beechworth or casual ride with my wife. It is always an enjoyable and fun activity.

Did the ride from Beechworth to Porepunkah. Fairly easy ride, just a small hill to climb coming into Myrtleford. This ride would suit beginners but there are more challenging extensions to the trail. A great way to see the countryside.
