Trail Conditions

What to expect along the Trail

Central Otago is a landlocked region, sheltered from coastal weather with very distinct seasons. Winters are often dry and fine, but frosts are common at night. Roads can get icy, especially in early morning, so be careful when driving. Rainfall is infrequent, although the Strath Taieri valley which is closer to the coast can get more rain.  

Spring weather is the most changeable. Summers, also autumns, are generally warm and dry - but weather can still be variable. New Zealand, is an island nation so it is a good idea to be prepared with some emergency clothing. Warm air rising from the sun-heated plains, to be replaced by dense cooler mountain air, can result in strong winds. 

There is no notifiable conditions along the trail at this time.
