Plan and organise your trip independently. Which way to go? Where to start/stop/stay? How long will it take you? You can cycle the whole trail – or a part of the Trail. Decide what you would like to see and do, and the distances you want to travel.
Five Days or More
A 5-Day plus trip allows you time to meet the locals and explore the interesting and historical places in this part of Central Otago.
Three Day Trips
Most people who bike the whole length of the 152 km Trail allow themselves at least 3 days. Plan for 4.5 - 5 hours of cycling each day.
Two Day Trips
Experienced cyclists who are more used to extreme gut-busting mountain bike tracks can still enjoy the gentler terrain of the Rail Trail.
One Day Trips
Even one day is enough to get a taste of the Rail Trail and experience some of the more spectacular sections.
