The trail passes through undulating dairy country, takes in unique regional flora and fauna, and there are a number of quintessentially Gippsland villages along the way.

Husband and son of 14 years decided to go on a cycle ride and ended up doing 73 km, missing the train at Stratford but still enjoyed this route.
