Northeast Rail Trail (Scottsdale to Billycock Hill)

Development Route / by Captain ‘O’ & Gravel Girl

The rail trail follows an abandoned railway line between Scottsdale and Billycock Hill weaving its way through lovely farmland and a bit of Scottsdale industry for the first 10 Kms and then some amazing cuttings and forests as it winds its way up Billycock Hill for the final 16km. A full description, and credit for this route, can be found on Tassie Trails.
