Step back in time to New Zealand's rugged settler past as you cycle this historic rail trail through the Central Otago goldfields. Take on the challenge of riding the full Rail Trail, or skip some sections and enjoy a rest or an explore.

The Otago Central Rail Trail follows an old line from Clyde to Middlemarch along a constant and easy gradient. It is a great way to view scenery not seen from the highways.

The route festoons through many small towns and abandoned gold diggings from the 1800s. Meet some interesting locals when you try your hand at the ancient art of curling before ending the tour with one of the world's great train rides through the spectacular Taieri Gorge to Dunedin.
