I live along the trail so am spoilt, where else can you see cows, sheep, horses, kangaroos and wombats on occasion amongst all the beautiful bush its very relaxing, rain, hail or shine.

This track is nearly 80kms from Lilydale to Warburton return and is one of my favourite bike rides in Melbourne. It is not sealed so don't ride your road bike here. It has many bridges that cross the Yarra and you don't need to do it all. You can start anywhere along the track however we often prefer to start at Seville where it is not too hilly and ride into Warburton. Its great on a hot Melbourne day as its often a few degrees cooler offering relief from the heat. Launching Place Pub is also a favourite stop for a drink. Try not to miss this!

Victoria has a lot of great trails and this is one of them. Good for walkers and cyclist, although just check the length of the trail you are taking same of the track was in poor condition for my bike but otherwise a really good trail.

Have walked lots of different parts of the trail - fairly easy walk and lots of good places and things to see on the way.

Fabulous ride for the whole family...although little ones may need a push! Mostly flat ride with a few rises and falls. Start in the morning, have a leisurely lunch and potter along the river in Warburton, then ride back to Lilydale where you parked your car!
