Lake Dunstan Trail

Written by      

Connecting the Central Otago towns of Clyde and Cromwell, the Lake Dunstan Trail skirts the water. Its final section, through the Cromwell Gorge, is set to open at the end of this summer, featuring bridge sections cantilevered from the sheer schist faces and suspended over the artificial lake. The track is a feat of engineering, with the result being a relatively easy ride—it will be rated Grade 1-2. It connects to Central Otago’s 536 kilometres of existing cycle trails, including several Great Rides.
