Margaret River to the Margaret River Chocolate Company

Margaret River, Western Australia, Australia

Trails - Easy

The first half of this ride follows the Wadandi Track gravel rail trail north from Margaret River, which is the centre of a famous wine growing region. Soon after settting off, there is a detour for about 2km along some nearby MTB trails due to bridge maintenance on the main trail. The trail presently ends at the small town of Cowaramup, know locally as Cowtown, where there is a display of partially restored railway wagons at the site of the former railway station. The ride continues at a slightly faster pace along rural roads through farmland and vineyards to the Margaret River Chocolate Company which has been a favourite ride destination for over 20 years. Apart from a couple of very short sections approaching 10% gradient on the MTB trail detour, the steepest gradient is 5%. The average gradient is 0.6%.
