This is an old goldminer's trail crossing the Richmond Range from Wairau Valley to the Wakamarina Valley. The track, which crosses the Richmond Range, is best travelled from south to north.

This is an easy 2-day walk or a long 1-day walk with several side trips. There are theree huts along the way if you would be keen to take things a little more easy.

This is also a popular mountain biking track, it's considered and advanced trail as a good level of fitness is required since there are several steep and rough sections. Mountain bikers must stay in control of their bikes and give way to walkers.

Several tracks, you choose different capabilities. Great for mountain biking. Excellent views. See where the old Goldminers worked.
