Starting on Broadway, ride up the road towards Blacks Point for 800m until you see the swing bridge crossing over the Inangahua River. Cross over the river and follow the walking track downstream on the other side. Cross back over on the road bridge and turn right onto Broadway to complete the loop.

This track takes you past the site of the powerhouse that enabled Reefton to be the first town with electric lights in 1888.

    This is a short easy ride for the whole family although you're on a highway for a while. There are lots of sign boards about Reefton's claim to fame as you cruise down the riverside
