West Coast Wilderness Trail

The West Coast Wilderness Trail is a truly unique West Coast experience.

The West Coast Wilderness Trail is one of New Zealand's Greatest Rides and for good reason.
This easy Grade 2 cycle trail is centred around Hokitika and offers a dramatic ride through dense West Coast rainforest, past glacial rivers, lakes, beaches and wetlands. 

It also offers an interesting look at local history as it follows tracks carved by pioneering gold rush miners along extensive water races, logging tramways and tram lines. 

Riding the Trail

The trail an easy Grade 1-2 ride.

It is mostly off road on a firmly packed smooth gravel surface with an ambient gradient and there are only a couple of short sections you may prefer to walk - but it's worth it for the outstanding views. 
The trail can be ridden either in part or in its entirety from either end.

We can help you plan a ride to suit your abilities and enjoyment. Contact us to personalise your ride!
