It feels like a good jump start into the New Year 2014! Running the distance of a half marathon along the Central Otago Rail trail…Started in Ophir, at Pitches Store and followed the main road to Omakau from where you can choose: following the Rail Trail to the left or to the right 🙂 … A fun, picturesque trail right through the plateau alike scenery of Central Otago.
However, most people take their bike to travel through 150km of Otago’s history. You will discover a beautiful scenery as well as tunnels and bridges that once were the secret preserve of railway workers. The bridges are a virtual history of New Zealand railway bridge building; from the 1897 Capburn Bridge (Tiroiti) to the Prices Creek Bridge built 1961-63.
