Melbourne's Best Runs: Maribyrnong River Trail

The Maribyrnong River Trail is a 25km shared path from Docklands to Brimbank Park in Keilor. Run some of it, a looped section or, if you're really keen, the whole trail in one go!

Along the way, the trail passes landmarks such as EJ Whitten Bridge, Horseshoe Bend Children's farm, Pipemakers Park, Canning Reserve, Burndap Park, Newells Paddock Wetlands Park and Flemington Racecourse.

The path is gravel in places, and sealed in others.

The Maribyrnong parkrun goes along a section of the trail; it's a free 5km fun run every Saturday morning at 8:00am.
