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.

If you know of any public toilets near the trail start or on the route, please login and then let us know so we can update this section.

Having just moved to Greymouth this trail quickly has become my favourite run. Lovely scenery, views and a nice trail to run on with a few small hills.

This trail is just wow, just love the West Coast. The views along the coast are just stunning, the bush is magical and the track is so runnable. This trail has it all.
