Lilydale to Warburton via the Warburton Rail Trail
17 h 30 min to 1.25 day
7 h to 14 h
This lengthy trail takes you to Warburton via the Warburton Rail Trail from the car park near the end of Chapel St, Lilydale. The 38km trail follows the path of the historic railway line, meandering through the Yarra Valley, passing by many towns in an increasingly rural landscape with a mountainous backdrop. The trail ends in Warburton, a quiet town nestled in the mountains. The track is mostly well signed, with a flat gravel surface suitable for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. It's a very long trail, but it should be relatively easy for fit walkers. You'll have heaps of opportunities to stop along the track, from cafes to picnic spots. Make sure you take enough water though, for the distances between the said spots. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
