A good alternative to following the rail trail to Alexandra is to leave Clyde Rail head and ride down into the township of Clyde. Explore the old Township with its historical buildings on the main street and Power Dam just behind the town. Cross the bridge and follow the signs leading to the Millennium walking/ cycling track.
The millennium trail is a very scenic trail that follows the true right of the Clutha Matu-Au River for a distance of 13 km, passing the Earnscleugh Tailings Historic Reserve en route to the Alexandra Bridge.
This popular walking / jogging track can make a pleasant ride on its own either by returning on the same trail or combining it with the Alexandra Clyde rail trail section. It is a mainly flat single track with small undulations, a good surface, some boardwalks and bridges, staying pretty much within 20 meters of the river all the way. As previously stated it is very popular so watch out for other users on corners
From Alexandra, cross the iron bridge heading south and duck left under the bridge. From Clyde, take Matau St and cross the Clutha River. Trail is on your immediate left.
