Tumbarumba to Rosewood Rail Trail 

The Tumbarumba to Rosewood Railway Trail was officially opened in 2020 and since then has had over 60,000 people come and complete the trail. We think this is an absolute must-do when visiting the Snowy Valleys.  

A vibrant, revitalised trail for walking, cycling, pushing, strolling, peddling, rolling and relaxing. 

With Trailheads at Figures Street Tumbarumba and at McEachern Lane in Rosewood there is over 21 kilometres of sealed trail with gentle gradients and sweeping curves to enjoy along the way. 

Relax and enjoy beautiful scenic countryside and spectacular mountainsides with safe trails for the whole family to enjoy. For the more serious rider, challenge yourself to complete the whole distance and try some of the other cycling opportunities in the Snowy Valleys. 

Make sure you have time to enjoy Wolter Cottages, the beginning of the Rail Line, with two heritage listed buildings from the 1870’s including a historical display. The Rail Trail itself has many historical displays and features four restored bridges from the original Rail line which are of significant historical importance, being of timber trestle construction. These have been preserved in the reconstruction and refurbishment process. Mannus Creek Bridge is a seven span tall bridge which also features an inbuilt curve, a masterpiece of bridge building. 

Note: No horses or dogs are allowed on the trail at any time.
