Roxburgh Gorge Trail

New Zealand Cycle Trail

Central Otago, South Island

Planning on riding the Roxburgh Gorge Trail? Contact us for help in planning your itinerary and booking your trip. More details on jet boat transfers can be found below. 

The 44 km Roxburgh Gorge Cycle Trail starts in Alexandra and follows the Clutha Mata-au River through the Roxburgh Gorge to finish at the Roxburgh Dam. Opened on October 24th, 2013, the Roxburgh Gorge Cycle Trail gives access to fantastic rock formations, historic stone cottages and sweeping views of the river and lake.

The ride down the river from Alexandra is a complete contrast to the ride up the river to Clyde. After leaving Alexandra the ride quickly enters a steep rocky gorge, with no other access than the old bridle path.  A points the gorge rises above cyclists almost 350 metres on either side of the river. 

Old Chinese miners huts built from local schist rock are carved into the gorge and cyclists will make their way through two eerily deserted gold mining villages as they wind down beside what are now the upper reaches of Lake Roxburgh.  Riders will experience an immense feeling of loneliness in this rugged landscape that encompasses the visitor in in a timeless state.

After 10 kms of riding, you arrive at Doctors Point jetter where you will board a jet boat. The jet boat cruises 12 kms down the river to Shingle Creek. Here you will hop back on the saddle and ride the final 10 kms before arriving at Lake Roxburgh Village. This jet boat transfer must be organized in advance. 

The Gorge relents as you approach Roxburgh Dam and the steep rock walls give way to some farming and the swirling currents of the river ease into the still waters of the Lake Roxburgh.

The Roxburgh Gorge Trail can easily be linked with the Otago Rail Trail via Alexandra or the new Clutha Gold Trail (another of the new Great Rides) at Roxburgh.  In total these trails create more than 250 kilometres of fabulous riding in the Central Otago region.  The Roxburgh Gorge Trail is also one part of the Mighty Clutha River Trail which once finished will run from Lake Wanaka 338 kilometres south-east to the Pacific Ocean.
