The trail passes through high quality dairy country, and offers sweeping views of the Great Dividing Range to the north. Visitors can connect to and travel by train to either end of the trail. The trail is perfect for weekend short breaks with most townships along its route offering accommodation, and all offering hot food, visitor services and amenities. With three V-Line services daily (http://www.vline.com.au), trail users can arrive at Traralgon or Stratford by train, then return home, again by train, from the other end.

Officially commences at the intersection of Marshalls Road and Traralgon-Maffra Road (C105) approx 4 kms from the Traralgon train station and CBD. The trail carpark is located at Burnetts Road, approx 1km along the trail towards Glengarry. At this location there is plenty of safe off road space to load and unload bikes, organise gear and there is also a trail map and information shelter.
