Murray to Mountains Rail Trail
The Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is Victoria’s second-longest bike path and one of the High Country’s best walking/cycling trails for families or casual riders. It’s sealed and relatively flat much of the way, and passes through spectacular rural scenery of farms, forest and vineyards, with views of the alpine ranges.
The 94km trail runs from Wangaratta to Bright via Myrtleford and Porepunkah. A section of the trail then heads northwest from Wangaratta to Wahgunyah via Rutherglen, completing the true Murray to Mountains experience.
Aficionados say the 16km between Everton and Beechworth, which detours off the main trail, is the best part of the ride (despite a challenging uphill section), as you’re cycling through bush. Bikes can be hired in Wangaratta, Beechworth and Bright, as well as towns in between.
