40km of very basic low gradient rail trail is what you should expect here. Nothing technical, nothing challenging, but with many moments of breathtaking scenery (Hovea Falls in particular) and opportunities to stop for a coffee, lunch or a pint at John Forrest Tavern and Mounties (Mt Helena) on the north side or sundry other locations along the southern section. When ridden clockwise you have a nice long descent from Sawyers Valley to Bellevue which, if ridden counter clockwise, makes for a reasonable training loop with some effort required if you want to maintain a decent pace. You'll find little to excite you, but it's nonetheless a pleasant trail.

A favourite of mine is the Pechey Rd and 6kms east through the national park. Great view of Perth, waterfalls, jarrah forrest and the 400 m old railway tunnel.
