Route Notes - Northern Rivers Rail Trail


Route Briefings - The Northern Rivers Rail Trail

The Tunnel - the Tunnel is 524m long and pitch black in the middle.  It is essential to use lights (see above for operation).  It can be chaotic at times with many users not having lights.  Please endure lights are on, sunglasses are off! and proceed with caution.

Yellow safety barriers - these are positioned where roads cross the trail.  They also cause quite a few accidents with people clipping the barriers or riding outside the barriers and falling off the trail.  Take your time at the barriers and go through the middle.

Suggested Route for the Rail Trail - from Mooball go South for 2km to Crabbes Creek (near start fo trail).  turn round then continue 24km to Murwillumbah station.  Turn round then stop for lunch at Hosanna Farmstay. (on left just after Stokers Siding if you are coming back).
