Absolutely perfect for either cycling or hiking – whether you feel up to tackling the entire distance, or, just a section of it – the views across Port Phillip Bay are stunning, the seaside villages still historically beautiful and should it become a little hot, simply stop at any of the many beautiful beaches and enjoy a swim in the crystal clear waters of the bay . . .
Parks picnic facilities and amenities are dispersed at various intervals along the trail.
A delightful article published in the local paper of this region in 1893 provides an interesting perspective on cycling . . .
Commencing just over a kilometre west of the historic Portarlington Pier, at the Boat Ramp located within Portarlington’s Caravan & Tourist Park, the trail follows the shoreline of Port Phillip Bay all the way to Beach Road situate at the southern end of the township of St Leonards. There are a number of small breaks in the trail along the way, where one may have to cross the grass of a Park, or follow the gravel roads of a tourist park, however, these are few and far between.
The views are expansive, amazing and forever changing !!! Refreshments can be obtained in the seaside villages of Portarlington, Indented Head and St Leonards.
The trail is an easy gradient the entire way, consisting of well maintained gravel surfaces, bridges, bitumen and concrete surfaces. The trail, for the most part, is separated from the road.
