Trail Description

These are some roadside trails which run alongside Hobbs Road and down onto the Gisborne - Melton Road. On the latter, stop when you get to the lawn area in front of the farm. This is where the trail ends.

On the Gisborne - Melton Road, the traffic is evident with the noise but on the Hobbs Road part of the trail you'd hardly know the road is there as the trail is slightly set back and the road hidden by vegetation to a degree. The roadside trail is about 7 kms in length so a round trip gives you 14 kms and you can add a circuit within the Lerderderg State Park (red trails to south west of road) to top this up.

Note I haven't ridden the red trails though a post on Rotorburn indicates they are rideable, albeit hilly.The trails are good for a quick training run if you live out west. Trails can be a bit muddy and slippery after rain due to the clay base but nothing too bad.
