Remutaka Pylon Track

Featherston to Kaitoke

This is the nastiest climb in the lower North Island. It’s long and extremely steep. Endorphin addicts love it. At the Kaitoke end, there is a brilliant technical single track to finish with. For an honest day out, pack an extra sandwich and make this a full loop trip by riding the Remutaka Rail Trail as well.

The Remutaka Range was formerly known as the Rimutaka Range – the name changed 10 October 2017.
