“Pedal power”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

As a novice rider this trail offers easy sections with good stopping points along the way. Well maintained and signposted the trail winds through towns and countryside it is a great way to see the North East.

“Easy to ride, plenty to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Excellent riding service all the way. We got a lift to Bright, had lunch at the Ovens Hotel and back in time for a dip in the pool. The next day we started in Beechworth (at the bakery of course), then it was downhill all the way to Everton, took the road route to the Millwara Cheese factory for lunch.

“"Worth the Ride"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We travelled by train to Wangaratta then cycled about 4k to North Cedars Holiday Park which backs onto the Rail Trail for our first night. The trail from Wangaratta to Bright is about 83k of fairly easy riding on a mountain bike. There is a little climb at Taylors Gap. The surface was sealed all the way. Lovely country side to ride in with lots of cattle to watch you as you go past. Good amenities along the way though if not detouring take plenty of water if hot. Stayed at Oriental Cycle Hotel in Bright and rode back again the next day. Have previously ridden from Everton to Beechworth a nice steady climb to Beechworth, but a great ride down.

“Great exercise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I walk a fair bit. This trail from Wangaratta is a nice easy walk or ride. I like the quietness of the track and the fact that every now and then some one rides past and says G'Day

“Sore Bums but huge smiles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012 via mobile

We left our car at wangaratta and cycled off toward beechworth, 4km in I wondered how we would ever make it. With such a great track through the most scenic country side you were mesmerized. The climbe from everton to beechworth was quite a challenge but such an achievement to complete and to be welcomed by such a lovely town was well worth it. Then on to myrtleford and bright the scenery was amazingly beautiful. Fantastic ride highly recommended. Bus a bike was a great find to get us back to beechworth up the hill on our last days.
