Walking trails

Explore the quieter parts of Warrandyte with shorter rides for less experienced cyclists and longer rides for cyclists wanting a cardio-vascular workout.

There are short and long options for this ride. Both trails take the rider through some of Warrandyte's quieter backroads, include some excellent destinations for picnics or cafe lunches and conclude with a pleasant ride along the picturesque Yarra River.

The short ride provides a suitable circuit for families and less experiences cyclists, while the hilly terrain of the longer ride provides an excellent cardio-vascular workout, especially in the Husseys Lane and Hall Road sections.

Suitable for mountain bikes and touring bikes.
