It's a rugged gorge - arid, steep and rocky. The trail is well benched as it sidles along the south side of the gorge. It's a great afternoon ride, best enjoyed on a sunny summer day with friends or family or both!
The Roxburgh Gorge trails are an absolute must-do for casual riders who like their trails mellow, scenic, historic and interesting. There are good operators who will provide bikes, shuttles, advice, accommodation and reassurance for this trail, the Otago Central Rail Trail which precedes it and the Clutha Gold Trail which follows on from it. These three combine to form the best multi-day, easy, scenic biking holiday in the South Island of New Zealand.
