An enjoyable family riding holiday along the old rail line. We loved the downhill ride out of Beechworth, the green farms, the wineries and scenic hills surrounding the valley. The ride was on sealed paths the whole way and a great family experience

This trail is actually a series of connected cycle paths, linking existing (in the case of Wangaratta) and former railway stations in north east Victoria. All trails are sealed. A cyclist can choose a short circuit from Wangaratta to Oxley and Milawa, or longer route...More

Some friends and I completed the rail trail from Beechworth to Wangaratta over 2 days. It was an excellent trip and well worth the effort. If you don't like hills then go Beechworth to Everton on the first day (downhill) and Everton to Wangaratta (mostly...More

What a fabulous ride for anyone to do, by yourself, in a group, couples or families. Most of the ride is flat with some gradual rises in some places and, best of all, it is sealed all the way. Bring your own bike or hire...More

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!

Some friends rode from Everton station to Gapsted Winery and found this a pleasant trail. It is a bit uphill as it gets closer to Gapsted but worth it for the view, food and wine there. We walked some of the trail on a number...More

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

I liked the way we did it, Wangaratta to Bright, as you do the nicest section last. We went via Milawa, having driven to Beechworth for some cycling around there on a separate day. We did it in two days, staying a night in... More
