This 2.5 km trail gets it's name from the old railway formation it follows through the jarrah forest. The trail is uphill all the way and while it is not overly steep it doesn't give you much rest along the way.

The trail can be accessed from Ray's Trail car park on Harris River Road, just past the winery. Follw the signs and cross the road to ride out on Arklow Adaptive and link into Railway RIse. You can then return to Arklow Adaptive along Jarrah Jaunt or keep going along Highland Highway for a longer ride. 

All the trails in this loop are green.

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.
