Tyers Junction Rail Trail
Follow the route of an old government tramway that carried timber out of the Tyers Valley, connecting with the former narrow gauge railway to Walhalla at Collins Siding. Enjoy rainforest, fern gullies, seasonal wildflowers and the adventure of some creek crossings along the way.
Distance: 21km return
Track: Rough dirt track
Grade: Level 3 – Challenging rides requiring experience and a good level of fitness
Start: Moe–Erica Road, Collins Siding
Finish: Moe–Erica Road, Collins Siding
Note: This is definitely a mountain bike ride made up of generally smooth, gradual climbs and descents, with some creek crossings. Caringal Scout Camp is the turnaround point. Take care at the creek crossings that can be wet and muddy.
Getting there: Travel via Monash Freeway (M1) and Princes Highway (A1) to the Moe turn off approximately 130km east of Melbourne and follow the signs to Walhalla along the Moe–Erica Road. The trail starts just past Telbit Road, approximately 28km after the roundabout at the north end of Moe. Park in the clearing just past the fence line of the house on the left.
