The Yarra Trail is a shared use path for cyclists and pedestrians, which follows the Yarra River through the north eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The trail follows the river from near its mouth, through the city and suburbs to Westerfolds Park and Eltham. The Capital City Trail uses the same path up to Dights Falls, where it continues up the Merri Creek Trail as part of its loop around the city.

Bicycle Victoria has an ongoing campaign to have the path in Yarra Bend Park improved and the stairs at the east end of Gipps Street effectively removed from the trail by continuing the path on the west side of the river. Other alternatives include installing a ramp or installing a new footbridge near the Abbotsford Convent. An interactive map of the trail as well as others in the Melbourne area is available here.

These views are taken on the Yarra Trail along the Merri Creek (Photo 1) near Clifton Hill. The views of the City along the length of the trail are spectacular. We ar elucky in Melbourne to have such wonderful parks, rivers, creeks and trails throughout the metropolitan area.
