Part of the old Upper Hutt to Featherston railway.

From the Maymorn station end this trail has a short steep climb and then a gentle meander to and through the tunnel.

Lights are not needed in the tunnel but they always help.

Access Info

From the top car park ride toward the long drop and you'll see the track.

       Just road this short entrance to the beginning of the Rimutaka Incline on my Gravel Bike, Which has 700 x 28c slicks ( but a 11-36 cluster, and MTB rear derailleur ), with no problems. Track is well gravelled with little mud so can be ridden with slicks if you pick your line and have the gearing. Good winter track. Bring a light for the tunnel thou ( I didn't but kept my eyes on the end tunnel and Tunnel surface is nice and smooth. so no issues)
