Point Elizabeth should be a staple run for anyone for anyone visiting Greymouth as it is for the locals. Its a well maintained trail approximately 5.5km in length but a stride out to the state highway at the northern end rounds it up to 6km .
The trail is very windy and in dense native bush so it feels like two different runs even though it is an out and back. the only side option is about half way through the track there is a 200m side trail that takes you out the the "point" its self . well worth doing if your a first timer.
