Stony Hill Creek joins metropolitan Melbourne at its outermost northwest corner. We'll start at Watergardens Railway Station and make our way through some back streets to the beginning of the creek trail, follow it down to Kororoit Creek Trail and then segue over for a circuit of Lake Caroline, the grand water feature of Caroline Springs. We'll have lunch there. Then we'll ride the other bank of the Kororoit to pick up Tudor Trail on the southern part of Stony Hill Creek and follow a series of ornamental lakes and waterways to Wellness Trail (aka Western Freeway Trail). In this direction it's a lovely downward tending run through to Western Ring Road Trail which will take us to the final part of the ride down Sunshine Trail to Sunshine Railway Station.
You can buy lunch in Caroline Springs or bring your own. Aside from a few metres in a couple of places the riding surface is sealed all the way. Sunshine is on the same line as Watergardens so if you choose to drive it's a short trip back by train.
