The Michaeldene Trail is a level two loop that may be undertaken as either as a Short (2.7 km) Loop, or a Long (4.3 km) Loop - 30 minutes to one hour and a half.

The well-formed trail ranges from clay to gravel and stone in some parts. It crosses over several dirt roads but is clearly signposted and easy to follow.

The attractive bushland linking the Steavenson and Taggerty Rivers allows walkers and cyclists to step back in time to Marysville's historic logging past.

Sections of this mostly flat circuit follow old tramline alignments, which in places reveal the original timber sleepers on which the big logs were transported to the nearby sawmill.

The Taggerty River Lookout offers views over the Taggerty River. The Trestle Bridge was built to span a small gully and provide access to the timber on Red Hill. If you cross the trestle bridge you'll also find you can access the Red Hill track or return to your car via the Michaeldene Track.
