“An easy walk in”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Great hike for people of different walking/hiking/jogging abilities and experience. Our group split into two groups, one walking and one jogging. Both enjoyed themselves immensely. There are also bicycles for rent and we saw many people using this option to travel the 12 km hike. We truly enjoyed resting in the tall train tunnels as a reprieve from the heat. Even the lookout points, formerly water barrel platforms in case of fire, along the trestle bridges seemed to catch more of the breezes than else where on the trail.
There were many benches along the trail, but few areas to sit in the shade.
The views are wonderful, the bridges are fun and the volcanic rock in the area was neat to observe.
The only difficult area would be the mountain road up to the trail. We started our hike at the Myra end of the trail which required us to drive up a fairly steep gravel road with some areas having a washboard surface. We talked with one of the many area guides who said that the Ruth entrance was even harder on cars. Just something to keep in mind.

“Great hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

We took our kids on the trail. We went to the east entrance because we knew we wouldn't be able to do the whole hike which is 12 kms and there are more bridges and tunnels on that side.. We went over 8 of the 18 trestles, and two tunnels and then turned back. It was about 7 kms round trip. Amazing views and the kids got a kick out of the tunnels and the wood trestles. They also have bikes you can rent at each entrance which, if our kids were older, would have been a great plan....maybe next time.

“amazing views”

It was a great walk. Although bikes were available to rent, I would walk the path so as to see all the small things near the ground

“Railway trestles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

Intended to hire bicycles to ride the old railway route but arrived too late so walked half way round. Much of the area was destroyed by fire and although the trestles have been rebuilt there are a lot of dead trees.
