North East Rail Trail

Cycling in Scottsdale & Around

Following the course of the former Launceston–Branxholm railway, this unsealed cycling trail runs for 26km (one way) from Scottsdale to Billycock Hill, passing through farmland, lush rainforest and a railway cutting with 10m-high granite walls. Bless those railway makers – the trail is as good as flat the whole way. The trailhead is at the old Scottsdale train station.
