Railway Reserves Heritage Trail begins its journey at Bellevue, following the old Eastern Railway line on both sides of Great Eastern Highway. The two lines rejoin at Mount Helena forming a unique 41 kilometre loop entirely on railway formations before extending to Wooroloo Reserve.
The Trail can be accessed via many entry points along the 59 kilometre route, making it easy to start your journey from a variety of locations. Many of the reserves are now community parks providing picnic tables, toilets and other facilities to complete your experience.
Car parking is available adjacent to the Trail in most townsites as indicated on the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail brochure map. If you are using public transport, Eastern Timetables 86, 96 and 97 provide bus routes to most townsites along the Trail, or simply cycle directly to the Trail from Midland Station. Visit Transperth or call 13 62 13 for more information. The Trail also connects with Perth Bicycle Network routes SE3 and SE4 and is accessible from Perth Airport. For Perth Bike Maps visit the Department of Transport.
Access to Railway Reserves Heritage Trail is free, although a National Park fee applies for visitors who access the Trail from John Forrest National Park’s main car park. Dogs on a lead and horses are welcome along the Trail, except in National Parks.
