Shantytown to Moana (Lake Brunner) by a route never done before.

Gold Trail is an amazing ride through the history of the West Coast and the Gold Trails that both our ancestors and many Chinese walked, in the search for their riches of the Gold of the West Coast.

You’ll start in the history created of Shantytown. 

Until the Gold Trail Mountain Bike Ride there has never been a peloton of mountain bike rider’s ride down the Main Street of Shantytown.  “This will be a first” and why not be one of the first to ever do it?

If you're a first time rider to an elite rider, then this is the bike ride for you.  You’re going to see some of the untouched beauty of the West Coast of New Zealand. The beauty of the natural creeks, ferns, punga’s, the mighty rimu trees and natural flowing creeks coupled with the forestry roads with plenty of surprises.

If the start in Shantytown doesn’t get to you, then the beauty of Moana and Lake Brunner will as you cross the Arnold River via the swing bridge into Moana, then the Lake front, historic railway bridge as you head to the Moana Hotel.  What a way to finish!

This 40km mountain bike will touch every rider.
