Mountain Biking Lankey Creek Tram Track

**   Add a review
#222 of 387 mountain bike trails in New Zealand
#11,710 in the world

Start up Murray Creek Track then turn off towards the Energetic Gold Mine site. The 6km/4 mile one way track follows an old tram track for most of the way. You are required to walk some stairs to access this otherwise beautifully crafted trail.

Grade: 4
Time: 1.5 - 2 hrs

    This is what I call a heritage trail. Definitely interesting for an insight into local mining history. I preferred riding the Murray Creek to Ajax track loop.

    Partly historic tram track, partly hiking track - it's a schizophrenic trail! And there is a lot of push and carry...
    The gold mining history is interesting.

    Climb up via Murrays Creek trail for a good loop. Nice technical features, lots of tree roots and bridges.Steep and fun descent. Also plenty of gold mining history if you take the time to stop.
    Only drawback is tons of steps, lots of bike carrying.
