Down - Ingham to Axedale Town
Trail section between Ingham and Axedale Township
The rail reserve is not accessible between Ingham and Axedale Racecourse due to the line running through private property, crossing the Campaspe River, a road under rail bridge, and what is now the Axedale Golf Course. However, a Trail bypass runs through a short section of the Knowsley Forest to the Axedale Township where water, refreshments and a toilet stop are provided, along with the opportunity of seeing historical town sites. The Trail re-connects to the rail line at the Axedale Racecourse Platform.
