This is an interesting and well documented walk as you go around. The information boards give a good insight to the history of Martha Mine. The Gold Story at the information centre is a good place to go and see to gain a fuller understanding of how the mines worked and even still work today. A valuable experience.

If you are in Waihi to ride the rail trail take the time to blast (courteously) around the rim walkway. We were only half-aware of the mine so it was kind of surreal when after dinner we pedalled up the main street to the poppet-head display and then discovered the mine. We zoomed around the walkway on dusk and just got out as the entry gate was being locked for an unexpected experience. I have questions about the ecological impact of such an enterprise but it was informative and interesting.

A very interesting walk, looking into the huge hole and imagining the miners of old working down there in those tiny tunnels. Path goes through a little bush and housing, all fun

We spent an enjoyable time walking the Mine Pit Rim. It's amazing to find such a great whole in the ground right in the town centre. amazing.

About 4 km of interesting scenery. But some steep sections which we walked. But a must to do in Waihi. No charge for the use of the path.
