Pedals and Pints in the Perth Hills

Hit Up This Wheely Good Heritage Cycle Trail (And Refuel With A Pint Or Two Along The Way)

The Hills are a treasure trove of stunning scenery and warm hospitality – and we’re pleased to say, it’s now even easier to enjoy both at once.

Pedal & Pint are merging the best of two worlds, by pairing the area’s stunning scenery with the historic pubs and taverns dotted along the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail. Boasting 59km of forest, historical towns and even a slightly spooky disused railway tunnel, the Heritage Trail is the best way to take in both the spectacular natural surrounds and charming towns along the way – especially when you’re travelling on two wheels!

A true community effort from seven historic pubs and taverns, alongside local accommodation providers and local cycling tour operator Perth Hills Mountain Bike Tours, the Trail has been broken down into four cycling challenges, from “The Whole Shebang!”, a 67km loop that covers the whole flippin’ thing, or the comparatively easy-peasy 41km “The Loop!”.

During your ride, you can stop in for a pint with the roos at John Forrest Tavern, lunch in the picturesque beer garden at the Parky, or take in some live music at the Mundaring Hotel – other pubs along the route include the Mount Helena Tavern, Chidlow Tavern, Sawyers Valley Tavern and Mundaring Weir Hotel. You can even make a weekend of it with an overnight stay at one of the delightful local accommodations – including a luxe 115 year old home with in-house spa or an elegant train carriage.
