The trail is still a bit rough in spots but it made for a great day excursion from Nelson to Mapua and back. The trail was paved from Nelson to Richmond then gravel/dirt from Richmond to Mapua. The trail itself is well marked but there are not a ton of signs pointing to nearby wineries/galleries/etc- the only drawback. We managed to find the Te Mania Wines and the Hogland Glass Studio with some work. The bike ferry was fun and beer, smoked mussels, and ice cream were perfect mid-ride snacks!

Drive or bike there for lunch. Best fish n chips in New Zealand.
