In addition to the remnants of tunnels, races and walls of stacked stone you will pass through mature and regenerating forest.

The walk can be covered in under 45 minutes but allow extra time for exploring. Sturdy walking footwear is recommended.

Getting there

Drive south from Greymouth on SH6 for 8 km to Paroa, and turn left onto the road towards Shantytown. Travel down this road for 22 km east, mostly on a sealed road, past both Marsden and Dunganville. 

The road surface changes from tar seal to gravel for the last 10 km and is not recommended for campervans.

Do not drive past Woods Creek car park as the road is not maintained and a culvert has washed out.
