Lovely long ride. Most signage good but dontake the map. We gave up trying to find the trail once near the army facility and went on the highway, same on way back, highway to Eadine (?) st. Stayed at Duke Inn. Cheep room in hotel, nice bathrooms down hall and pub meal for dinner. Lovely old building and a bed- fancy. Plenty of possible food stops on the way- bonus.

Rode this track from Mundaring Sculpture Park to Lake Leschenaultia (Kep track goes past a trail leading into the lake area), easy flat riding. One cross of Great Eastern Highway and a few roads. Relaxing ride through some forest sections and bush borders the trail. Downhill jumps located before turn off at Mt Helena. Great trail to increase kilometres into a ride with options to do the Railway Heritage Trail and Goat Farm Downhill.

Im re-reviewing this track because I have now done the full length from Northam to Mundaring. If you are going to ride a 75km trail, then obviously you ride it for what it is - not for a challenging test of your bike skills, but for a pleasant cross country adventure through changing scenery, beautiful landscapes, and varying terrain. And for that, it is great. Maybe Im biased, I had perfect weather and the track was as quiet as it could be. I didnt see a soul for the first few hours and apart from the physical challenges I found the ride very relaxing and enjoyable. As a result I would have given this 5 stars without a second thought, but for the appalling lack of directions and signs. I spent the first hour of the day pedalling around northam trying to find the start of the trail, and once I did I had to turn around a few times when I took a wrong turn, as well as spend a bit of time sitting still scratching my head.

Havent ridden the full track but I find it a great ride for beginners or those who want a day off from the demanding stuff. Plenty of clean singletrack with a few little fast sections thrown in. If you wander off the trail you can actually find some pretty demanding fast and/or technical descents to test your skill on, and you can also ride it at a level to really test your abilities. Yesterday I managed to throw myself down an almost 90 degree decline, only 5 metres from the main trail, and pulled off a lucky escape from a 20km/h downhill corner slide.
