Ballarat to Skipton railtrail
The trail starts in the outskirts of Ballarat where Ring Rd crosses the railway, close to the Ballarat Botanic Gardens. The total distance from downtown Ballarat to Skipton is 53km.
It passes through the town of Linton about 2/3 of the way to Skipton, which has a general store, milk bar, and petrol station for drinks and supplies. Linton is actually a little bigger than the destination town of Skipton.
