Description

Situated in scenic North-East Victoria, this run follows the Murray to the Mountains rail trail from Wangaratta along the old railway line up into Beechworth. The rail trail is completely sealed for the whole way and includes one of the steepest gradient increases allowed for trains at the time from Everton up to Beechworth. Not a huge climb, but a very long gradual increase in elevation along what looks to be a trail that goes on forever. 

This is one part of a multi-part trail that ends in multiple locations and varies in length on each trail. A very scenic run with plenty of wildlife.
