The Goulburn-Crookwell Rail Trail Inc is seeking to establish a flagship attraction for the region...
Goulburn-Crookwell Rail Trail Inc has been established with the objective of creating a cycling and walking trail along the 54km disused railway corridor between Goulburn and Crookwell.
The trail would offer the opportunity visitors and residents alike to travel through scenic grazing country and unspoilt bushland on a wonderful cycle or walk across the Tablelands. As has been proven extensively in Victoria and New Zealand, railway corridors make excellent trails due to the slight gradients required by trains when they were in operation. This makes the trails accessible to novice riders as they meander through the beautiful countryside.
The whole community has a stake in any proposed Rail Trail, especially those who live, work, are responsible for or visit lands adjacent to the route of the proposed Rail Trail. Others will also have a strong interest in Rail Trails and the impact it may have on their businesses, employment, the potential social, recreational and ecological impacts and implications for the future of their community.
