Have you seen ‘Gerry’ on your ride or walk along the O’Keefe Rail Trail? Gerry is a regular walker, and has walked sections that incorporate the entire length of the O’Keefe trail at various times. As a keen walker, he has also enjoyed many of Victoria’s trails.

On a day when members of the Friends of the Bendigo-Kilmore Rail Trail were out on O’Keefe Rail Trail involved in a working bee, Gerry was passing by just west of Knowsley. He was walking from Heathcote to Axedale, a distance of about 30kms.
“It’s a great way to appreciate the quite atmosphere away from busy roads and urban areas, be immersed in the natural environment, as well as keeping up my fitness level” said Gerry, “This trail, with its surface finish and low gradients, is excellent for walkers of any age.”
