The main (82km) section of the Murray To Mountains Rail Trail to Bright starts by heading about 8kms north of Wangaratta to an area called Bowser. The route then turns south-east towards Everton, a small town established in the 1870’s that had a railway station a few kms north of the town, at Everton Upper. Here there was a junction where passengers could go north-east to Beechworth, south-east to Myrtleford and Bright or west to Wangaratta. The replica railway station at Everton Upper has shelter, picnic table, toilets and tank water.
Cyclists can choose to continue on to Myrtleford and Bright or head to the historic and popular tourist town of Beechworth from here (approx. 16km – route is uphill most of the way with some steep sections, otherwise, riding from Beechworth to Everton Upper is downhill).
