The trail is off road dry and a lovely easy run in the countryside. Get you away from it all. If you're in Greytown give it a go whether you run, walk or bike it 😎

Plenty of room for two riders side by side good parking. Dog friendly. Plenty seats along the way to stop and enjoy being in the country. Mostly farm land not a forest trail.

5 kms of glorious sunshine, views of countryside and mountains, spots of shade to rest and downhill on the way home. Just magic.
