Have your say on the Yarra Ranges Paths and Trails Strategy

Riders who enjoy the trails of the Yarra Ranges have a valuable opportunity to help shape the future of riding, running and walking in the region. 

As part of the Live.Move.Yarra Ranges initiative, the Yarra Ranges council is seeking feedback from all users to develop a new Paths and Trails Strategy. 

The strategy will build on the work done by the previous Yarra Ranges Council Hike and Bike Strategy, focusing on the development of connected and accessible local paths and trails that inspire, support and encourage the community to get active.

The current Lilydale to Warburton Rail Trail attracting around 200,000 visitors per year, many of whom are bike riders. The Yarra Ranges council recognise the importance of feedback from the various trail users for development, and are particularly keen to hear from those who ride bikes. 

They have designed a short (5 minute) online survey to help them understand:

  • How you use local paths and trails
  • What qualities about the paths and trails are important to you
  • How you would like to use them in the future
  • Where you think the gaps are and where you think improvements could be made 

You can learn more about the strategy and take the survey here.
