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 10k as long as you are not looking for gourmet choices. The only downside is... More

My husband and I rode the Beechworth spur branch and loved it. He is a much stronger rider than I am so he drove our car from Beechworth to Everton Station, rode the 19km steady uphill leg back again, then collected me from the Lake Sambell Caravan Park in Beechworth for the downhill journey back to the car. The entire... More

This was a wonderful bike ride. We did the Bright to Wangaratta with overnight at Mytrleford. The bike track on both trails was excellent. Great stop off's on the way. I can't say enough about this attraction. Great way to exercise with seeing the Alpine sights.

Cycled from Bright to Wangaratta, via Beechworth, with my family and would highly recommend the trip, especially in better weather!

We - mum and four kids aged 5,7,9 & 11 - spent seven days doing the rail trail, staying in Wangaratta then Everton, Beechworth, Myrtleford to Porepunkah. We intended to camp along the way, but cabins were infinitely more comfortable after a hard days ride, and not that much more expensive in most places. The highlights were: Beechworth (accommodation, eateries,... More

27 December 2015 I rode this trail as a solo rider over three days and it was just lovely. I had minimal preparation for the ride and was a bit nervous that I wouldnt make it - but it was fine!

See some of north east Victoria's beautiful scenery on the ride from Wangaratta to Bright on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail. From the flat beginning in Wangaratta, though to the hilly terrain around Myrtleford, and then onto flatter land heading to Bright, the ride really does offer something for everyone. It's generally suitable for all levels of riders, and... More

We had a wonderful ride over several days. Our route was Wangaratta- Beechworth- Milawa- Myrtleford and Bright. We carried our clothes in panniers and stayed in motels or cabins. The path is in excellent condition. It is relatively flat except with a 15 km uphill on the spur to Beechworth (but a great downhill the next day to rejoin the... More
