About Arklow Trails, Collie
Linking Collie with Harris Dam, the Arklow Trail Network is situated approx. 5 km north of Collie on Harris River Road. You will find the trail head at Ray’s Trail car park, on the right hand side, just past the Harris River Estate Winery and with over 35km of trails to ride, there is something for everyone.
There is a sign at the trail head with distances and information about each trail or you can download a map. Otherwise visit the Collie Visitor Centre before heading out to pick up your map and for other information.
The Arklow Trails can also be accessed by riding out from town along the Munda Biddi Trail or by using a local shuttle service.
Depending on the route you take, Collie is around a 2 hour drive (200km) south of Perth.
You can also take a Transwa bus from East Perth which takes 3h 40m including transfers and departs once a week.
There is a wide range of accommodation in Collie ranging from bed and breakfasts to motels and old pubs. Check out the Collie Destination page for more info.
Collie has all the facilities expected of a good sized town including bike hire and bike transfers to the trails.
There are no facilities on the Arklow Trail Network. Take everything you need for a few hour's ride.
Supported by great organisations
Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
