Mountain Biking Lake Roxburgh Walkway
#242 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
This track follows an historic trail that was used by gold miners last century. It goes down the gorge across the lake from the Roxburgh Gorge Trail.
The trail starts out reasonably easy but is narrow and concave so you do have to stay alert. It becomes rockier as you continue on down the gorge. A few short pinches are unrideable. By Butchers Point it has become a technical ride suitable only for expert riders. You can turn back as soon as you get out of your comfort zone or carry on walking to have a look at the historic huts at Butchers Point.

It's best to ride from downtown Alexandra. Head towards Omakau on Tarbert Street which is Highway 85. Turn right into Fox Street in less than a kilometre, then right into Kerry Street. Cross the Manuherikia River on Shaky Bridge, turn right and you're going down Graveyard Gully Road which soon becomes the Lake Roxburgh Walkway.
