About the listing
Originally a narrow gauge railway built for moving timber and passengers in the early 1900's, the Old Beechy Rail Trail is now a compacted earth trail running from Colac to Beech Forest. The trail, best suited for mountain, hybrid or E-bikes is 50km in length and takes visitors from rich farmland and rolling hills to pine forests and lush bushland.
On route, the Old Beechy Rail Trail passes several small towns including Barongarook, Kawarren, and Gellibrand. These towns, popular for activities in and out of the saddle, allow riders a break and a chance to refuel with a coffee and some delicious treats. These town also provide opportunities for riders to shorten the length of the trail by starting or finishing at places other than Colac or Beech Forest.
