It's a great iconic ride, if your brave enough you can combine it with the Pylon Track as a long loop...that will test your strength! I've done it a few times and absolutely Love it

Tunnel Gully is one of those places that you see the sign for but usually keep driving. Don't! it is worth a look. Pack a picnic basket and spend a few hours. There are some nice trails and the old railway tunnels are interesting. They...More

The old Rimutaka Rail line traversed the mountain range more than 60 yearsago and this marks some of the now abandoned track. There are some really good and accessible tracks into the forest here.
