The Wild Coast Track is a rough, four wheel track that runs along some of the south coast of the North Island. It's an isolated, rugged and windy coast to the south east of Wellington. On a bad day it's hell but on a fine, calm day it's sublime.
The track is rated intermediate but intermediate riders will often feel outside their comfort zone. There is some soft sand, some steep bits, some shifty gravel, river crossings, washouts and other obstacles expected on a barely-maintained 4wd track.
The track is promoted as a part of the "Rimutaka Cycle Trail" which combines four very different tracks. The first is the Hutt River Trail which which is a surburban ramble from Petone to just beyond Upper Hutt. The second part is the popular, heritage-rich Rimutaka Rail Trail. The third part is Western Lake Road which is a relatively quiet sealed road. The fourth part is the Wild Coast Track. They are very disparate trails but they make up a popular two or three day supported holiday adventure ride of 115 kilometres.
