Old Railway Line Details

Start at the top carpark and follow the old railway line formation through native bush and exotic forest plantations towards Kaitoke. There are several forestry tracks leading off this route for more adventurous and experienced riders to explore, including the track to the Rimutaka Rail Trail via Goat Rock (579m).

To reach Kaitoke Regional Park's Te Marua area, turn left where indicated and ride up the hill towards the gate and service road. Cross the road and follow the track through the underpass and down Kaitoke Hill. Return the same way, via the Pylon Loop Track or through Plateau Village.

 Just done this Trail northbound so a easy slight climb. Very good trail surface(fine stone/well seated), two way. This is a nice trail for Families to do with young children, as the surface is good and either direction would be managable for young riders.
