A trail linking the five Wairarapa towns, Featherston, Martinborough, Greytown, Carterton and Masterton is on the drawing board of a new entity named the “Five Towns Trails Trust”. The proposed Trail will be a significant new experience readily accessible from Wellington City and offering a great experience of the Wairarapa. Bridge infrastructure is key to crossing various rivers and some other trail work and road alignment will be required. Promotion will occur through Destination Wairarapa and WREDA Destination and Marketing.
The proposed five towns trail recently received an accolade as one of five “Signature Trails” in a review of cycle projects in the Wellington region.
The Wairarapa Regional Mountain Bike Track Trust are driving an initiative to provide off-road trails which will be accessible from points along the 5-Towns Trail. This will further improve access and will be very attractive to all-terrain cyclists from around the region. You can show your support for the wotk of the Trust by following their Facebook page.
Remutaka Rail Trail
As a focal point of Greytown, (albeit slightly to one side!), the Rail Trail is used extensively by sponsor organisations, local clubs and informal gatherings for a multitude of activities. Where we have advance notice of these, we will help with publicity by including details on our “Events” page.
