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 at 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.

Small towns along the trail include Glengarry, Toongabbie, Cowwarr, Dawson, Heyfield, Tinamba, Maffra, Powerscourt.

Officially commences at the intersection of Marshalls Road and Traralgon-Maffra Road (C105) approx 4 kms from the Traralgon train station and CBD.
