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.

A scenic walkway/ cycle way from Woodside Station to Cotter St Greytown. Well maintained, Route takes you through farmland and under old oak trees that once lined the railway line into Greytown.
