This great addition to the Rameka Experience has been built by the volunteers and helpers of Project Rameka in conjunction with the Golden Bay MTB Club. This is the start of a planned network of trails in the area.

Great Expectations takes you down to Rameka Creek 3.5km's from Pack Track.

Access Info

In short the Project Rameka is a "Carbon Sink" project to help get our world back into the shape it should be! So... with that in mind. It may be worth noting that people living, or based in Golden Bay often park beside the big Totara at the bottom of the Rameka Gorge (4 km out of Takaka) and ride up the Rameka Creek Road and then down Great Expectations. Others do the same and ride up to Canaan Downs and back doing the entire Rameka Track both ways! Both are greener options than using shuttles to and from the top!
