I was on this trail this morning (Saturday 21st March 2015), from Rushall to Royal Park and back. This is a popular trail for cyclists and walkers – going through great inner suburbs of Melbourne. I’m glad they kept the old train easement a park, as it adds to the attractiveness of the surrounding area. The path is sealed the entire length and there is only one slight hill as you enter Royal Park. Being part of the Capital City Trail there are plenty of bike paths leading off to all parts of Melbourne. There are a lot of activities happening along and off the trail most weekends – as well as plenty of cafe/food options with the nearby streets. The only issue is to watch out for cars as you cross some of the streets, especially towards the Rushall end because there aren’t pedestrian crossing lights.
