Had a lovely ride from Everton to Beechworth and return on the Easter long weekend. It is up hill along most of the 16 km to Beechworth but the gradient is not too steep and it is easy to roll back later in the day....More

The scenery is great, the trail is well signposted, safe and easy riding. A group of five riders did Wangaratta-Beechworth, Myrtleford-Bright and enjoyed every bit of it.

Fantastic Rail trail. If you are feeling lazy, the trail from Beechworth to Everton, then to Wangaratta is basically downhill. Make sure you have a ride back to Beechworth though as its quite a climb to get back home!

Easy and superbly sceanic. Signage abit lacking in places - especially on return into Wangaratta. The names of some attractions on the route could also have been improved on signs - very small printing on a bigger sign which was all about pathway etiquette meant...More

A group of 11 of us from NSW rode this trail. We also did some side trips and stayed a night in Myrtleford. Bus-a-bike took us and our bikes back to Wangaratta. Although quite cold, Autumn is such a beautiful time. Highly recommend it.

This is suitable for people of all fitness levels as you can do it in small stages at your own pace. There's plenty of resting points for walkers and cyclists but bring your own water. There are ample places to purchase food every 8 to...More
