“Great trail!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

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.

“Great outdoors - but not in summer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

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.

“Safe and Beautiful Cycling”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

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 in Porepunkah for a delightful lunch before returning to Bright.

We can't wait to get back to the area to cycle other sections!

“Do the ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

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.

“Very pleasant ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

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.
