Grand Ridge Rail Trail (Mirboo North - Boolarra)

Stopped at Mirboo North to check out the 'Grand Ridge' rail trail in the Strezlecki Ranges in Gippsland. And couldn't resist several single tracks beside the Rail Trail. The entire length of Rail Trail travelled through a post-fire landscape of black & green, with the rainforest regenerating from January 2009 Delburn Complex bushfires. Two bridges along the trail were completely destroyed, so had to carry bikes to cross creeks, but construction of two steel arch span bridges will begin soon.

Length: 13km each way
Surface : smooth gravel
Grade: Moderate climb up to Mirboo North
PS. my spring time lily white legs don't look to good on 'Humpty Dumpty' vision.
