Including e-bike hire, transfers, accommodation and some great cuisine. The laid-back Hauraki Rail Trail is a Great Ride for all ages. With its gentle terrain and abundance of accommodation, cafes and restaurants, it’s one of the easiest and most satisfying trails in the North Island. Leisurely riding traces the Shorebird Coast, quaint historic towns, lush farmlands, a historic railway corridor through the Karangahake Gorge, and then heads South to Matamata, home of the Hobbiton Movie Set. With options to explore the Coromandel further, it’s the perfect getaway for a relaxed 4 day adventure. The varied Trail offers a memorable journey across a length of 197 km.
