Rimutaka Rail Trail
- Access to the Rail Trail is via the Go Kart and Gliding Club accessway at Kaitoke, turning right off State Highway 2,
This track traverses the original Railway from Kaitoke to Cross Creek, a distance of 17km. The easy grade walking track winds through bush, slides round hillslides and passes through tunnels – Summit Tunnel 600m long. Remember to take a torch. Once at the summit the walk down to Cross Creek is steeper with the Siberia Washout more difficult under foot. This walk offers numerous opportunities for swimming in the Pakuratahi River.
