Interactive map of the rail trail from Bikely.com.
This is a great ride. Running through the Colquhoun State Forest, the trail links the East Gippsland Rail Trail with Lakes Entrance. 7.5km of the trail follows the route of the Mississippi Creek Tramway used to transport stone from a local quarry for construction of the Entrance.The trail leaves the tramway at Scrivner Road, running beside the road to Lakes-Colquhoun Road which leads to Lakes Entrance.
Most of the rides will be on roads that have very little traffic or on forest trails that have almost no traffic and are best enjoyed with a mountain or hybrid bike. The website provides directions and maps.
