Keywords:The Hauraki Rail Trail is the easiest riding Trail in New Zealand with various stages allowing for comfortable 3 day Rail Trail cycle rides. The trail is in close proximity to Hamilton, Auckland and Tauranga and is accessible from Thames, Paeroa, Te Aroha, Waihi/Waikino. The temperate climate on the Coromandel Peninsula and the Hauraki Plains provides a great all-year round riding experience.

The 82km trail is the easiest cycle trail in New Zealand to ride with the longest tunnel 1.1Km and showcases some of the best scenery New Zealand has to offer, from the Pohutukawa trees on the Thames Coast, through lush green Waikato farm lands, to rich areas rich in pioneering history. A major highlight includes riding through the stunning Karangahake Gorge, one of the 14 wonders of New Zealand. The trail follows the path of two historic railway lines running from Thames to Paeroa, Waikino and Te Aroha, while a new path will link Waikino to Waihi.
