This is makes up day 2 of the 136km West Coast Wilderness Trail. This section includes all the best parts of the trail with some swooping downhill's (ridden from Kumara to Cowboys) and amazing bush.

At both Kumara and Cowboys there is food and accommodation. Cowboys Paradise is in the process of expanding so it may pay to check with the information centres or call/email them to check they'll be open when you come through.
