This is an easy ride that provides great city and park views as well as allowing you to take in all the river activity. Even at the busiest times it is peaceful along the river bank once you get away from the city. It is an excellent short activity to include in a family day in the big smoke or for a new arrival to Melbourne to see some of the better city views.

4 stars for the half close to downtown, zero for the rest. Average 2 stars. Ear plugs recommended, traffic noise is horrendous. Bikers use the trail for racing it seems. Plain dangerous for hiking. Cannot recommend it.

Good trail by the city. Easy one. Better suited for runners..

This is part of the Capital City trail and can be extended for as long as you'd like to go, before actually completing the whole Cap City trail. Or, you can continue for approximately 6 more km to the Yarra bend park, and then route around the park before returning on the other side of the Yarra river; Trail is flat and mostly paved. Lots of bike riders, some runners and walkers (like me). Most of the trail is buffered by the river on one side and a narrow strip of bush and woods on the other side. Otherwise, its in an urban setting.
