About the walking and cycling trail
We are working with Parks Victoria to create a new walking and cycling trail in Plenty Gorge Park. The trail will deliver the missing link between University Hill (Bundoora) in the south and Doreen in the north.
The trail will also link to the new Mernda and Hawkstowe railway stations and enhance community access into Plenty Gorge Park.
Where will the trail be located?
The trail will be in Plenty Gorge Park on Woiwurrung Country, about 35 kilometres north east of Melbourne’s CBD.
When will the trail open?
Construction is expected to start in late 2021. The new trail will be open in stages from Spring 2022. Meanwhile, Plenty Gorge Park is open for visitors to enjoy.
