What makes this trail unique is the number of old taverns, once watering holes for weary rail passengers and settlement workers, each with its own stories, character and charm! Stop off to refuel along the way and enjoy some Perth Hills hospitality while you explore the trail by bike.


Hit the whole trail, or do a section at a time. Do it in a day, or book an overnight stay in the local area and enjoy an evening meal at one of the old Hills taverns! Head to https://pedalandpint.com.au for accommodation options nearby.

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.
