Easy cycling well maintained trail. Lots of helpful friendly locals and so many interesting places to visit. Superb eateries/wineries to spend time in. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy this at leisure

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.
