Staying at the High Country Holiday Park the trail starts just across the main road behind the Information Centre. I took the kids (7, 9, 11) for a bike ride from Mansfield to Bonnie Doon. 3hrs and 22kms was a great adventure without pushing them...More
Based ourselves at Molesworth and did day trips on the rail trail from Yea through to Mansfield. Some tough stretches around Merton and out of Yea but all in all a great track for most levels of fitness and for serious or social riders. Fresh...More
Didn't quite make it to Bonnie Doon during the heatwave - just 5 kms short - but in total rode 34 km! I'm not fit and did struggle a bit. Hired bikes in Mansfield, took plenty of water and snacks and enjoyed a lovely ride...More
We great fun on this track. We hired a tandem bike from the bike store in Mansfield. It was a bit cheaper and some fun. Also as my wife does not ride that much so allowed me to help out.

We parked at Yea and rode to Alex then back the next day. We have mountain bikes and although the gravel was rough in parts we thankfully had no punctures. There is a mix of up and down hills on both days. The rough gravel...More
Easy safe ride with teen to build skills and chat without the interruptions of the electronic world. Can do short sections or the whole hog - working up to that. Toilets along the path and easy links to villages. Take your water though! Rural scenery...More
A nice easy ride for the mountain bikers and as it was a railroad route it is is fairly flat with only gentle grades along the way. Suitable for kids and those only average fitness. Some very scenic spots and resident wildlife.
Stopped at Molesworth Recreation Reserve. This is about the half way point of trail. Road to Alexandra and back day one. My partner rode from Mansfield back to Molesworth day two l did Molesworth to Cheviot Tunnel. Next day we both rode Molesworth to Yea...More
We enjoyed a short hike on this marvelous rail to trail. There was abundant wildlife, scenery and sites to enjoy. The history is also marked as well as many places to stop, sit on a bench and just relax in the natural beauty.

I have not ridden on all of this 134km long rail trail. The end bits are always nice!! - completing it is a to do list for me. Having ridden on the 80km return Warburton Rail Trail three times, some in the dark and majority of 76km Great Southern Rail Trail, stretches of typical rail trails can be bumpy with rocks. My husband realised the mistake when he rode his 23 wide road bike. If you have to use a road bike, check if your rim can accommodate a 28. Otherwise, do bring some spare tubes in addition to the discomfort on some stretches. I have a ball with mountain bike! Hope this helps!
Haven't walked it but saw plenty of walkers whilst riding it - i'm sure walking the trail would be very pleasant and there are quite a few options for accomodation along the way. As for weather, being Victoria it could... More
