The Railway Reserves Heritage Trail has been spruced up with its own website.Â Located, the trail that is not the website, within the Perth Hills the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail retraces 59 kilometres of the old Eastern Railway that formerly linked Fremantle to York in the late 1880s.
This walking, cycling and horse riding rail trail starts at Bellevue forming a unique 41 kilometre loop at Mount Helena entirely on railway formations, before extending to Wooroloo Reserve.
There is a brochure on the trail available for download here. It provides a background on the trail and a map of same.
I have ridden the rail as a bit of a easy day ride. I rode it on a mountain bike but it could be easily ridden on a cyclo-cross or reasonably equipped touring bike or a hybrid. It is a fairly easy ride with lots of places to stop and visit.Â Just donâ€™t forget your lights if you want to ride the tunnel!
