“Great Track to the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Got lost on a bike (Melbourne's a great place to do that!) and found the Merri Creek Trail which I followed all the way to Bridge Street and then down into Flinders Street. Really lovely trail following a running river part of the way, thank you Melbourne drivers for being so considerate of cyclists, it's enough to make me want to live here!!

its a great walk, run or cycle path that joins the Yarra City Trail from the city. Has some lovely spots to stop and be still or enjoy a treat/coffee

“A great cycling path”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

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, but apart from that it is smooth cycling all the way. It gets busy on a nice day.

this is a great little tour for a weekend bike journey. Josh (only 2, sitting on the back) loves the journey and the river all the way along.

“Perfect for walking or bike riding”

This great trail can be followed from Reservoir to it's confluence with the Yarra River at Dights Falls. Here it joins the Yarra Trail.
