The very popular Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail east of Melbourne is not complete. It can extend another 12km through the scenic Yarra Valley to Yarra Glen.
Over the past six years Rail Trails Australia has been working with Bicycle Network, the Shire of Yarra Ranges and other stakeholders to make this a reality.
What is needed now is greater understanding from the local community on the benefits of the rail trail , and some local champions as part of a Rail Trail Friends group to assist in bringing this section to reality.
Come along this Saturday 1st March to learn more, meet fellow rail trail supporters and show your support. Better still encourage others to come along as well.
Representatives from RTA, Bicycle Network and the Shire will be in the main street of Lilydale towards the station between 8am-11am, and in the main street of Yarra Glen between 11:30-2pm.
