A great trip do do with the whole family! The track is gently graded and is popular with all sorts: bikers, walkers, dog walkers - you can even swim and fish in the Pakuratahi River.

There are interpretation panels along the way and loads of good photo opportunities. Part of the trail includes tunnels so make sure you bring a tourch. Enjoy

A bike ride for everyone. It can be leisurely or tough and is definitely suitable for novices. The tunnels are fantastic. Don't forget a torch or better still a head lamp. The hill is a tough climb in the sun and there are plenty of great picnic spots. I loved it!
