Waiuta Track Details
Waiuta is another mining ghost town and has several buildings and mining remains.
More of a Grade 4 trail rather than Big River which is Grade 3, the Waiuta Trail is 99% ridable in the dry but in the wet is much harder (hence the Black Diamond grading here).
Big River - Waiuta is technical benched single track that continues on from the end of the Big River 4WD track. Expect to experience a challenging range of surfaces from mud and corduroy to mixed flowing sections and smooth, gentle downhill.
From Big River it's 2-3 hours and then another 1.5 hours to ride back to Reefton via the back roads and State Highway 7.
