Very peaceful and tranquil for a walk or ride, just watch out for other cyclists, some are very inconsiderate and travel too fast, also need care crossing busy roads, especially Old Gippsland Rd in Lilydale.

Lovely every time - don't bother with the cafe in Mount Evelyn though, called 'Happy Trails' it's very slow service and very mediocre food - trying to be rustic but only achieving amateur.

A nice rail trail with many beautiful sights and quaint cafes along the way. It is much easier to cover a long distance riding a pushbike, but on a pleasant day walking is wonderful. Would recommend.

This is a great way to exercise & see the area. The residents are so lucky to have this bike & walking trail. And it is well used by walkers, runners & cyclists.

Track is wide so towing a bike trailer shoud be fine. There are some steeper hills at the lilydale end that yu may have to push a bike with trailer.
