York Cycle Rides - The Heron’s Highway TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE FLOODING FROM 22/07/21
About the Trail
A quiet, easy ride suitable for families, both leisure cyclists and mountain bikers on dual use (walkers and cyclists) dirt and gravel riverside tracks and the quiet back roads of York.
Loops of varying distance from 2.6 kilometres to 7 kilometres can be ridden singly or combined. Starting from the suspension bridge in Avon Park, past a cluster of heritage buildings the trail meanders beside the Avon River. It emerges onto bitumen roads that provide gentle slopes and scenic views of Walwaling (Mt. Bakewell) and Wongborel (Mt. Brown).
Candice Bateman Memorial Park is a great place for a rest stop or picnic with facilities and play equipment. You can take a loop past the York Cemetery with its imposing C19th High Victorian Gothic sculptural monuments or return along Newcastle street to the suspension bridge and Avon Park.
York is just over an hour’s drive from Perth through beautiful bush and rolling farmland and has several linking walk and cycle trails that you can mix and match to suit yourself.
