Our target trail is for mostly the NZCT Grade 2 standard which is a gravel trail that is wide enough for cyclists to pass in opposite directions and not be too steep. Parts of the trail will exceed this standard.
Our aspiration is for the trail to be mostly off the road. In places where the trail must follow the road corridor we will try to separate the trail from the road itself as much as possible.
We plan to have the trail open year round and in all seasons. Some of the sections of trail that are on private land may have limited access hours or be closed at certain times of the year to suit farming or other activities on that land.
