The Otago Rail Trail is open all year, it’s an off-road cycle and walking trail so there’s no traffic – just yourself and the amazing scenery.

The railway system was constructed by workers using picks and wheelbarrows and dynamite in very harsh cold conditions. It was built during the economic depression and World War I. In time the rail line became the lifeblood of the region. Later as roads became more economical than rail, making Otago’s rail line redundant.

Otago Rail Trail Trust was established in 1994 by the Department of Conservation to convert the old disused rail line into a walking and cycling trail.
