The trail is 141km long, easy to ride trail (no hills) with a 1.1km long old railway tunnel to ride through. The trail showcases some of the beautiful scenery that New Zealand has to offer, from Pohutukawa trees on the Thames Coast through to lush green Waikato farm lands to areas rich in pioneering history.
