The ride will start from the BBQ/Picnic Area overlooking the river at Porepunkah and across the way from the Porepunkah Pub. If you arrive early, you can grab a coffee from the Rail Trail Cafe. We’ll follow the trail through Bright to link up with the Great Valley Trail to finish at Harrietville where we’ll have lunch beside the river. ‘Morrie’s’ Cafe should be open for lunch, or you can grab a bite from the pub down the road or bring your own lunch.
There is an elevation gain of 124m between Germantown and Harrietville and it’s about 200m elevation gain in total between Bright and Harrietville which means it’s downhill all the way back!
The trail is suitable for hybrids and road bikes. Make sure your tyres are pumped and you have a spare tube.
