NSW is relatively late to the party on the potential offered by Rail Trails. But wow – the Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail sets a very high standard. This trail provides a sensational reason to visit the Snowy Valleys area for a weekend, and can be used both for a trail-based ride and as a foundation for exploring other parts of the region.
The routes and recommendations below are based upon a trip in February 2022. I look forward to visiting again in future. Wouldn’t it be amazing to ride Canberra to Tumut, then connect to the Batlow – Tumut Rail trail, before cycling the final climb and descent into Tumbarumba and onto the rail trail?
Other recommendations to go with the cycling
Winery – Courabyra Wines
Offering beautiful views across the vineyard to neighbouring berry and cattle farms, Courabyra also offers great meals and wine tasting. Highly recommended – book a table on the North Verandah for the best views.
