Auckland Private Tour - Karangahake Gorge - Beginner
The Karangahake Gorge snakes through the foot of the Coromandel peninsular beside theOhinemuri 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 1km tunnel (we provide lights of course!) 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.
At this halfway point, we will stop at the Waikino Cafe for lunch, located inside the railway station for some hearty food to keep us going.
This trail is suitable for riders with beginner mountain biking skills. It can take between 2 – 4 hours in duration to complete the trail.
