This trail is a great beginner trail. Mostly flat gravel through the entire 50 km's. I started in Bellevue and worked my to north of the trail. I believe this is best way as you get good practice and speed on the return trip. A great place to get used to gravel riding and learning to control your bike at higher speeds. Also - look for 4 - 5 smaller skill trackers on the side of this trail, they are great to play on as well. Very fun trail, just remember the food because the gradual incline of the ride will wear on your quickly!

Whats happening about the dog problem around Darlington ? On a few occasions I have encountered dogs off leads and not in contol by owners ?

Wonderful ride through the Perth Hills! There's easy vehicle access points along the entire trail, so it's easy to pick and choose where to start and finish. There's a wonderful variety of scenery - I particularly loved the old railway tunnels and bridges, as well as the sweeping views in Boya. Whether you complete it all at once or break it into smaller sections, the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail is excellent ride for nature lovers of all skill levels.

Fantastic bush trail close to the city with plenty of options to complete the sections and cafe as well as a pub stop along the way! Part of the trail goes through John Forest National Park and there's scenic views, an old rail tunnel, bridges and waterfalls in winter. Parking at Swan View and Mundaring sculpture park is good. This trail is a good introduction to off road cycling and also because of the loop it makes for good cross country training. Keep an eye out and you may see the odd Kangaroo. No singletrack action, just a mellow social relaxing chance to ride your bike! The trail also acts a nature corridor for the local wildlife to coexist in an urban area - this is special!

I really enjoyed this trail, we rode it in a clockwise direction it wasn't very technical, on wide rail trail gradually sloping up so it wasn't a difficult climb. Make sure you take a light if you want to ride through the tunnel! Got a bit lost going to Sawyers Valley but was easy enough to find the way back onto the trail. Great time of the year to ride it, saw lots of walkers and parks in the towns are full of kids! Pullled in for a coffee in Mundaring before a great descent back to the Bellevue RSL. A very leisurely 40+km with great scenery.
