Walk Description

Start the walk opposite the Radio Springs Hotel, Lyonville. Walk 20m from the hotel to the information board in the Main Street. Follow the track, which starts directly behind the information board, across the Coliban River flats and continue until it crosses the Domino Trail approx 60m from the start. The track is just to the south of the Domino Trail and roughly parallel to it. After a further 400m, and just after crossing a creek, the track turns left (north) and crosses the disused railway line, i.e. the Domino Rail Trail.

Continue on a vehicle track which swings north-east for about 500m to a track junction. Turn right (east) and continue on this track for about 3.5km to re-join the Domino Rail Trail. Proceed along the Rail Trail for about 1 km to Trentham Station. From there, walk around to the Trentham Park and Lake which is an ideal spot for lunch, or visit one of the many eateries in Trentham.

Return to the start of the walk along the the long, straight length of the Domino Rail Trail.
