Opened to considerable fanfare in 2013, this well-constructed cycling and walking track was intended to connect Alexandra to Roxburgh Dam. As access through some of the farmland in the middle section wasn't successfully negotiated, however, riding the 'full trail' requires prearranging a scenic 13km jetboat ride (adult/child $95/55) through the local information centres or directly with Clutha River Cruises.
An alternative is to make a return trip from each end: Alexandra–Doctors Point (20km return) or Roxburgh Dam–Shingle Creek (22km return).
From Roxburgh Dam you can continue on the Clutha Gold Trail, an easier 73km track that follows the Clutha through Roxburgh to Beaumont and then heads to Lawrence. The same maintenance fee covers both tracks – payable at any of the local i-Sites or via your cycle tour operator.
