Aqueduct and Rail Trail Self-Guided Bike Tour in Warburton

Warburton Trip Overview

Everybody rides the Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail… and it is beautiful… BUT there is a hidden gem! The O’Shannassy Aqueduct trail. It is equally easy to ride but passes through stunning wilderness with very few people! It is carved into the side of the mountain so has stunning views at multiple locations. Don’t worry though, it’s a loop ride so you still get to ride the Rail Trail as well! Glorious!

Itinerary

You will be transported to the ride launch point (avoiding a grueling 800m climb). Your self-guided ride will begin on the lesser known hero of Warburton Trails, “O’Shannassy Aqueduct Trail”. This amazing trail is cut into the mountain above Warburton.

Ride through towering forests that have been protected for over a century, abuzz with abundant flora and fauna – towering trees, stunning ferns and babbling water courses. Upon reaching the Dee Rd Picnic Ground you can enjoy the stunning valley views.

As you continue riding along the trail you can enjoy more of the stunning landscape. At Don Valley Road you will ride down off the mountain and join the Warburton Rail Trail which you will ride back to Warburton. The Rail Trail provides a completely different riding experience meandering through lush farmland as you head back towards Warburton, concluding at the Warburton Basecamp.
