A long scenic ride in the Perth Hills with gentle gradients on 90% wide old railway track, 10% road. There is plenty to see and do along the way This old railway track provides a long circular loop in the Perth Hills. The surface is good and the gradients easy. The abundance of cafes and interesting scenery in the John Forrest make this a great family trail. If you are feeling brave you can also cycle through the longest railway tunnel in Western Australia. Once on the trail navigation is easy. Simply follow the wide, well surfaced track. The only major hill is the long steady climb from Greenmount to Mundaring. Take care when crossing roads. At these junctions there are signposts with distances to the towns and roads. There are plenty of great places to stop for lunch, or it is possible to ride shorter sections. The area around John Forrest is particularly scenic. The Heritage Rail Trail also connects to the Munda Biddi (heads south from Mundaring) and the Kep Track (East towards Northam from Mount Helena).

What an awesome Trail. It has it all. Scenery, history, wildflowers, quaint little towns and a great coffee shop at Mundaring. It is best to start this trail at Bellevue and ride clockwise. That way you get the slow climb up and it's all downhill home. Take a headlight so you can ride through the historic tunnel.
