This is a readily accessible and short run on the outskirts of Rangiora, ideal if you're visiting the region and looking for a simple trail. A lot of the trail overlaps with mountain bike paths and  it could be busy at times with bikers.. The trail is braided in many places so there is no perfect route to follow and you don't need to follow the GPX perfectly, it would be difficult to get lost. There is the opportunity to cross the road that you eventually come to following this route and carry on a lot further.

I did it!
  • Access

    On Cones Road, south of the Ashley River bridge and a few meters south of the intersection with the main highway along MIllton Avenue there is a short access road to a car park and the trail head.

    Note: the GPX trace is from the main road following the access road. But the entrance is easy enough to see in daylight if looking for it.

    The carpark is visible and seems safe. The area is frequented by walkers and bikers.
