Fabulous easy trail with lots of photo opportunities. Stay at The Quince B&B at Millers Flat and don't miss Stone House Garden at Roxburgh for lunch and coffee.

Excellent. You will see some of NZ’s best scenery on a trail that has been well planned, constructed & maintained. Ensure you book Dave Crawford, Beaumont Jets to take you & bikes through undeveloped section.
