Old Ghost Road Announces Trail Grand Opening

The Mokihinui-Lyell Backcountry Trust has announced a public grand opening for The Old Ghost Road at the NBS Theatre in Westport at 2pm on 12th December 2015. At 85km, it will be New Zealand’s longest continuous single track, designed for mountain bikers and trampers alike.

The Old Ghost Road is one of 22 Great Rides in the New Zealand Cycle Trail. It runs from the historic mining settlement of Lyell in the south to Seddonville in the north. The trail has 16 bridges and four new hut complexes to complement two pre-existing Department of Conservation huts. It is a Grade 4 mountain bike track suitable for skilled and experienced backcountry riders and trampers.

Sections of The Old Ghost Road will remain closed up until the grand opening date to enable completion of construction activities. For more information, please visit
