Trail Description
About this trail
This track connects the Inangahua Valley with the Waitahu Valley by a 6.5km/4 mile one way trail. However, by linking short sections of road to each end, a convenient loop starting and finishing at a Reefton cafe can be achieved. The track climbs up a historic road to the Waitahu Saddle then drops down a benched single track ending with technical, devilish, descent down to the Clematis Suspension bridge. Ride back to Reefton via Gannons Road and the Reefton Highway.

(The 16 mile round trip starting and finishing in Reefton takes 4-5 hours including historic pack track/4WD track/Road)

Grade: 4
Time: 1 - 2 hrs

Review: I didn't find much magic on this trail. It's a good workout going up Murrays Creek and the singletrack coming down the other side is different. It does have a few interesting moments. Then the ride back to town from the bottom of the hill is boring.
