For many, this is your first introduction to the Otago Central Rail Trail. Even just getting to the start of the trail is exciting with a bit of navigation out of the Clyde township and taking some time to look at Bruce Potters fantastic mural in the underpass. 

Make sure you get a picture at the official sign when you get to the Railhead. 

You’ll quickly move inland cycling between lifestyle blocks, vineyards and across the wooden trestle Mutton town Viaduct. At 109 m long it’s the longest wooden viaduct on the trail. Mutton town gained it’s name during the Otago gold rush in the 1860’s. As miners grew short of a food, an abattoir was established between Clyde and Alexandra, and sheep were slaughtered to provide food. In this pop up town, a pretty penny was paid for a leg of mutton. 

Look out for your first Interplanetary Cycle Trail Planet on this section.

MĀTAURANGA MĀORI (KNOWLEDGE OF ALL THINGS MAORI)

Mātauranga Māori is a modern term for the combined knowledge of Polynesian ancestors and the experiences of Māori living in the environment of Aotearoa. The term takes many forms, such as language (te reo), education (mātauranga), traditional environmental knowledge (taonga tuku ihomātauranga o te taiao), traditional knowledge of cultural practice, such as healing and medicines (rongoā), fishing (hī ika) and cultivation (mahinga kai).
