The Lake Dunstan Cycle and Walking Trail will officially open tomorrow, Saturday, May 8 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Clyde followed by celebrations in Cromwell.
The trail offers cyclists and walkers an easy 55km ride (Grade 1-2) through unique and fascinating landscapes so characteristic of Central Otago as it journeys along Lake Dunstan, the Kawarau River and the mighty Clutha River Mata-au.
Cyclists can now ride through scenery which would otherwise be inaccessible, past historic sites and on to engineered structures built specifically for the trail.
The Lake Dunstan Trail extends and complements the well-established Great Rides in Central Otago and the Southern Lakes, and provides a key link with the Otago Central Rail Trail and the Roxburgh Gorge Trail, both of which are part of Nga Haerenga – New Zealand Cycle Trails.
