The Hauraki Rail Trail is a scenic bike trail suitable for all fitness levels, whether you enjoy cycling or walking. It can be experienced as a multi day bike ride, or explored from a base with day trips. The Rail Trail is has something for everyone!
From Waihi, a non cycling day trip can include a morning Train from Waihi to Waikino, a hour or two exploring the beautiful Karangahake Gorge on foot, then lunch at one of the fabulous cafes or restaurants before returning on an afternoon train.
If you’re a bit more comfortable on a bike, cycling through to either Waikino, or Paeroa and possibly back (if your up for it!) can make a fabulous day ride. There are also many mountain bike trails in the Waihi Area for anyone wanting more of a challenge.
