Day 24 Notes

West Coast Wilderness Trail without the rain is an awesome ride. It is an easy trail to do with great views and great tracks I think the best thing about it is that it has a bit of everything; forests, lakes, rivers, river crossings, swing bridges, walkways, roads and old history along the way. The only thing between Kumara and Hokitika is Cowboys Paradise which is a one saloon town with instant coffee and pies, so you will have to go without latte on this trail. I was originally going to go to Ross, but made Hokitika home as we need to recharge the camper and can do a bit of washing. Tomorrow I will add an extra 30km to my journey.

See GPS data here

The first lake the Kapitea Reservoir 

Into the trees.

A boardwalk in the middle of nowhere.

Having fun crossing number 1

There is more! here is crossing number 2

Just cut a path for the trail.

Swing bridge. This trail does have a lot.

What is in the middle between Kumara and Hokitika 

A quick stop at Cowboys Paradise 

The trail down, nice easy tracks, all the way down to the river.

Riding through old mining sites

Must have been a lot of work to dig all those water ducts.

Timber.. .

A little out of kilter.

Hokiitika beach.... west and wild.
Made it to Hokitika.
