The Lake Dunstan Trail is a TWO WAY trail that links the townships of Clyde and Cromwell. The trail offers cyclists and walkers a 41.2km ride (Grade 1-3) through unique and fascinating landscapes so characteristic of Central Otago as it journeys along Lake Dunstan, the Kawarau River and the mighty Clutha River Mata-au.
The ride has two very different sections Old Cromwell to Cornish Point – great Grade 1 riding along Lake Dunstan and the Kawarau River. Visit the Vineyards, cafes and Hotels along the way.
Once you pass Cornish Point the trail, changes to Grade 2 / 3. This section is highlighted by the stunning engineering associated with the cantilevers. You need to be prepared for climbing switchbacks (Cairnmuir Ladder has 9 of them), steep drop offs, narrowing of the trail so you need to be competent cyclists. Coffee Afloat beckons at the base of the Cairnmuir Ladder – allowing for a recharge before those switchbacks.
