Distance: 22kms
Grade: 2
Average Time: 2+ hours for families riding
Start: National Park Village
Finish: National Park Village

Appropriate for the whole family (children under 10 need to be confident riders), this loop trail follows a recovered bush tramway route for an approximate 2 hour ride. Starting and finishing in National Park Village, you will bounce in and out of pine plantation as you travel alongside the North Island Main Trunk Railway Line.

Go back in time as you travel through relics from the bush tramway era including the remains of log bridges, a small wood dam, pumice cuttings and rail irons.

Winter riding conditions with puddles and some mud areas could be present and ideal to head out in the morning in Winter.
