A 70, 60, near 50, and a 12 yr old..we rode Mansfield to Tallarook over Easter and thoroughly enjoyed it. We found the 60km from Mansfield to Yark harder going, felt like much further, the larger, looser gravel surface made it hard slog at times, very bumpy, we were also carrying our belongings on our backs for the 4 days which didn't help. Yark to Yea was the most enjoyable leg, 35kms of smoother pathway, beautiful scenery and excitement with a tunnel! (our bags were taken to Yea for us that day). Loved that ride and would love to do it again! Yea to Tallarook was an easy ride, also good. Toilets were along the way but you need to go into towns for water, was fine for us as the weather was cooler, however if riding in Summer you would need to fill up at every opportunity. Would have loved signs directing us to Devonshire Tea here!! :)
Stayed a great accommodation along the way and enjoyed excellent Pub meals at night.
We found the Beechworth-Bright trail easier in comparison and have done the full length on one day several times. We split this trail over 3 days and personally I would not do this one in one day...however am sure many riders could and would, Highly recommend this trail for a great ride and some thrown in "Serenity".
