Tides Getting Here Clutha Attractions
Wednesday January 15, 2020

The Clutha Gold Trail, a 73 kilometre easy-grade trail is open all year round. You can begin or finish the trail at Lake Roxburgh Village, or Lawrence.

The trail can be cycled in one day, however we recommend planning two to five days on the trail to allow for refreshment breaks, photo opportunities, and off trail activities.
