The terrain consists of river flats, slightly undulating plains and low hills. The trail passes by cleared grazing lands, remnant Forest Red Gums in paddocks, and pockets of riverine scrub at Greenhide Creek.

Route/Trail notes:

Moore is currently the access point for the northern section of the BVRT. From Stanley Gates Park off Main Street North, take Eskdale Street and then cross the footbridge located on the right onto Linville Road. Follow this for 500m to the trail head on your left.

The trail runs parallel to Linville Road for the most part, before crossing the road and them back again just before Linville. There are a number of gullies to transverse, some of which have been concreted, as all the bridges are gone, and in one section you cross a gated occupied paddock. Half way, you pass the Moore/Linfield Cemetery, which contains many pioneer family headstones, including Robert Williams, whose son built Stonehouse in 1874.

In Linville is one of the few remaining Stations and a number of old red railway carriages. Opposite is the welcoming Linville Hotel for a cool drink and a feed.  

Permits/Costs:

None.

Walked the final part for us of the BVRT from Nurinda to LINVILLE . It’s getting too hot to keep going each weekend so plan to cycle from Yarraman to Wulkuraka when the weather gets cooler again. It has been a lovely place to walk during winter.

A spare day while camping at Somerset lake, gave us the opportunity to take the family on our first stroll along the BVRT. Lovely sunny Sunday and although the little ones did not make it to the end and instead were driven up to Linville to meet us for lunch at the pub, it was a great morning's exercise.
