Merton Gap is the highest point you'll reach when following the Great Victorian Rail Trail at 397m. From Cathkin, you will have been moving uphill for just over 20km to reach this point but from here it's just a quick descent into Merton where you can replenish food, water and take a toilet stop if required. Take time to take in the scenic views before you enter the cutting.

Horse yards are located half-way up Merton Gap (on the Mansfield side) for overnight use by riders on the trail.
