A great place to enjoy a family bike ride or walk. Fairly flat, well made trail. For good access, views and picnic spot drive to car park at the end of Dee Road in Millgrove- before you get to warburton.

The path leads along the old aqueduct that brought water to Yarra Junction at a time when it exported more wood and logs than anywhere in the world except Seattle.
