Tour Details

Named after our mad Blue Heeler Pup “Rex”and the run away train crash 4 months after the railway opened in 1896 ,The trail follows the former Eastern Railway lines that ran from Perth via Midland through to York. The Mundaring (Southern) loop closed in 1954 and the main line closed in 1966. It was converted to a rail trail in the 1980’s

The Trail is the perfect place to relax and unwind as it takes in the peace and tranquillity of the attractive flora, fauna and natural landscapes of the Darling Range and John Forrest National Park. Enjoy the pleasures of time with family and friends or complete strangers connecting with nature or simply appreciating the fresh air on E-Bikes. 

While on your journey, take in the romance of the rail era as you discover the history and character of the many charming settlements that evolved alongside the railway line, including Darlington, Parkerville and Mundaring.

What to Expect

Fantastic bush trail close to the city with plenty of opertunities to stop along the way! Part of the trail goes through John Forest National Park and there’s scenic views, an old rail tunnel, bridges and waterfalls in winter. Parking at  Mundaring sculpture park is good. This trail is a good introduction to off road cycling . Keep an eye out and you may see the odd Kangaroo. No singletrack action, just a mellow social relaxing chance to ride a Giant MountainE-Bike! The trail also acts a nature corridor for the local wildlife to coexist in an urban area – this is special!

We stop off at the John Forrest tavern and experience Kangaroos in large numbers being fed, we take a side track just after Hovea falls and head over to another valley and in September and October will be exploding with wild flowers. We rejoin the trail just before the oil rail tunnel which we will ride through .
