Great for bike rides or walking

The Riesling Trail is well kept and a great place for a long (or short) bike ride ir walks. Can access the wineries for a quiet drink or a meal.

Lovely bike trail taking you through some pretty country side. You can hire bikes if you don't have your own. We rode our folding Brompton bikes and they handled the trail with ease. I was impressed by the number of wild fruit trees growing along the side of the trail. We cycled the full length minus the final 5km's into... More

We joined the trail near Skillogalee and were very pleasantly surprised that almost the whole path to Auburn was down hill. Beautiful scenery. It has obviously been a wonderful season for flowers. The roses in the whole area were stunning, particularly the size and number on each plant. The path is in excellent condition.

Lovely gravelled old railway line that runs for many miles and is free and open for walkers, runners and cyclists. It allows easy access to several wine cellar doors direct from the Trail and allows wine tasting by bike, without the worry of being over the car driving limit! A great local feature

We did the trail about 4 years ago and really enjoyed the experience. We took our own bikes as we weren't sure about the ones you could hire. We started our ride in Clare and rode towards Auburn. While the trail is relatively flat (no real hills to content with) we rode into a head wind which made it hard... More

Just beautiful and this time of the year, looking green and lush. Great ride. Smell the wild lavender. What does it smell like to you?

The trail is on an old train line so in the most is fairly flat. It passes many winery's for those that are interested.

We had the pleasure of cycling the trail on a weekend away in Clare. We travelled in Spring and the conditions were perfect, not too hot and the flowers were out - it was great viewing. The trail was a bit more difficult to cycle than what I had assumed, but it was definitely worth the effort especially with the... More
