The Taylor River trail runs along both banks of the Taylor river providing easy riding on flat and mostly well maintained terrain. The trail on the eastern bank is wide and sealed from the start at Sinclair Street bridge for around 2km with the remaining 5km a well maintained dirt track.

The opposite bank has a mixture of 4x4 and single track that is rough in places but connects to a good 4x4 track that runs past vineyards and on up to the Taylor Dam. There is also access to the Benmorven track that is also flat and easy riding for 1.7km one way.

One can cross the river at several bridges or direct through the river bed when it runs low during the dry months. The eastern bank trail is popular with walkers, runners and dog walkers so care must be taken. It offers an off-road route to the Wither Hills mountain bike park via Taylor Pass Road.
