Hauraki Rail Trail
Atiamuri to Mangakino
22km or 12.5km
The Karangahake Gorge snakes through the foot of the Coromandel peninsular beside the Ohinemuri River.
Aside from its natural beauty, the gorge is home to relics of the Victorian gold mining days. Full of history, and a bonus ride through a 1 km tunnel - you won't be disappointed with this ride. This 22km trail can be cut down to 14km if you would prefer to opt to catch the train at Waikino (check train timetable beforehand).
At this halfway point, you can stop at the Waikino Cafe for lunch, located inside the railway station for some hearty food to keep you going.
Continue your ride after lunch with 8km to go.
This trail is suitable for mountain bikes only.
