Beginner - Intermediate
Starts at the Lauder Station area on the Central Otago rail trail. You then follow the trail all the way to Auripo Station which is located in the Ida Valley. On the journey there it is slightly uphill, but a nice easy gradient. You travel through all the best parts of the rail trail, viaducts and tunnels!
Once at Auripo, trun around and head back appreciating the views and sights all over again, finishing up back at Lauder Station.
