Remetuka Rail Trail goes from Kaitoke through to the Wairarapa. It is a lot longer than most care to walk in a day with a dog.

Dogs are allowed on lead or off-lead at heel and under control.

Easy gradient. Smooth path. about 5kms before the first rail tunnel. There is also a river on the northeast side and you can gain access to this about 2kms in. Take the left turn and walk down to the river. Good for dogs to play and humans to paddle.

This is a shared track: Watch out for bikes and ebikes on this trail.

There is a gentle gradient all the way to the summit station where there are train parts and history boards explaining the use of the railway here.

Can be hot in the sun. Little shade. Take water.

And take Torch for the tunnels !!
