What to expect on the trail

The trail extends for 152 km from Clyde to Middlemarch along the former railway route. It has a wide gravel path with a gentle 1.5 gradient making it the ideal trail to introduce yourself to riding if you do not have a lot of experience.

The Otago Central Rail Trail, New Zealand’s first great ride will take you on a ride of discovery, revealing truly unique and breathtaking scenery not readily accessible by other means and unlike any other in New Zealand.

This is a journey into the heart of Central Otago of dry rocky outcrops, productive farmland, river gorges, tunnels and viaducts. Small longstanding goldmining townships with old stone and mud-brick cottages have been built along the trail, many of which have been there since the 1900s.

What our customers say about the trail

“Dave and the team provided a great personalised service with suggestions whilst we were planning our trip. They organised our Otago Rail Trail accommodation and even ensured that we had reservations for evening meals. Once we got going everything went without a hitch from the airport pick up to the transfer of luggage every day and swapping bikes for the Dunstan track. A truly efficient and personalised service that made our holiday exceptional.
Thanks Davey
