Walking New Zealand
Alexandra to Clyde River Track
This area is special and regarded as an ‘outside museum’ so please admire but do not touch. The Tailings are protected and are on conservation land.
Linger for a while in the delightful historic township of Clyde – it is well worth a visit. Take time to browse the local shops, stop for an ice cream or a coffee from a local cafe before commencing your journey back to Alexandra, either back along the river track, or you can link to the Otago Central Rail Trail.
The rail trail is a shorter, more direct route (only 9km) taking you past orchards, vineyards and farmland. Orchard Gardens and Hintons Estate Cellar Door offer a leisurely break enroute or just take time to admire the stunning views of the Old Man Range.
