The Interplanetary Cycle Trail

Interplanetary Cycle Trail Interpretation Map

The Otago Central Interplanetary Cycle Trail is an innovative way to explore our solar system while on the trail!  The Solar System has been shrunk by a factor of one hundred million to one & mapped it onto the trail.  

The model accurately reflects the size of the Sun, planets and our Moon, and the distances between them.

The centre of our Solar System, the Sun, is located in Ranfurly and each planet’s location is based on its average orbital (direct) distance from the Sun.
