26" hard tail, no Luggage
I was in Busselton and wanted to try the first section of this Trail. The first section of the Track is about 11 km long, and is presently unmarked (as of March 2017) - I hope my GPX file helps you follow it. The track leaves the Busselton jetty precinct (make sure you drop into the visitors centre and see the train "Ballaraat") and follows the foreshore west. The foreshore path soon finishes and you join the cycleway next to Geographe Bay rd. After crossing a small bridge it turns left on to a residential street, crossing the busier Busselton Road. The next short section is on old form (for a very short distance) under peppermint tress and is very nice. But it soon crosses the road and joins a paved cycle way. After the golf course, the trail turns right and follows near the Busselton Bypass road - cars doing 100km/hr are visible through the bush. It is nearly all paved to the Vasse roundabout, and crosses Kangaroo Gully on an old rail bridge. I thought this first section of the Trail was nothing special if you are used to proper rail trail. However if you are based in Busselton and not going any further, it is a pleasant ride.
