Colac - Old Beechy Rail Trail




The Old Beechy Rail Trail follows one of the state’s former narrow gauge railways through an area of scenic forest, rich farmland and rolling hills with the coast not too far away. There is excellent bird life and rainforest pockets see magnificent eucalypts and blackwoods shading the lush understorey.

Trail Summary:

Where: The trail runs between Colac and Beech Forrest, two hours west of Melbourne.
Distance: 45km trail, which can also be completed in short sections and in either direction.
Gradient: Some gentle slopes and undulating trail to steep up and down hill sections.
Surface: Large sections of purpose-built trail with compacted gravel, short sections of heavy gravel on dirt roads and some sealed roads.
Suitability: Trail suitable for mountain bikes and walkers (dogs are allowed on a leash). Some sections of the trail suitable for beginners and families, some only suitable for intermediate to advanced riders.
Gates: Timber chicanes are found along the trail, which may restrict bikes with trailers or three-wheelers. Keys can be arranged through Colac Otway Shire.
Signs: Signs are provided right along the trail, but keep your eye out, particularly for directions on and off the gravel road sections.
