Laurence Mote at Ground Effect just sent me though some pretty interesting info about a possible new track to be built along the Paparoas, linking Sewell Peak Road (above Taylorville) to the top of Croesus Track.
The Croesus is easily one of New Zealand’s best backcountry rides and with the addition of this new section of trail you’d be looking at around 26km of epic backcountry singletrack. We featured a few photos from the Croesus Track in Spoke 29 in the Mark Weir tour story “Weir on Earth”. And it’s even featured on the front page of the WTB international website.
You can download the the draft proposal here, DOC is requesting feedback/submissions on the proposal. If you like the idea please let DOC know.
