Tasman's Great Taste Trail
NOTICE 3 February 2018: Due to the recent storms, parts of Tasman's Great Taste Trail is closed.
It is expected that the section of Great Taste Trail between Richmond Deviation and Lansdowne Rd will be closed for a number of weeks. The Nelson/Tasman Cycle Trails Trust is working with Tasman District Council to decide a strategy to reinstate this section of trail as soon as possible. In the meantime please use Lower Queen Street. The Trail is also closed along Whakatu Drive between the Honest Lawyer and the Aquatic Centre.
The inland section of trail from Lansdowne Rd to Rabbit Island is OPEN and the Mapua ferry will be operating again from Sunday 4th February. We advise riders to also avoid the section of trail along the Mapua foreshore and instead continue directly along Aranui Rd and Stafford Drive shared path until Pine Hill Road.
From Pine Hill Road to Motueka the Great Taste Trail is OPEN to riders. Coastal sections of Trail between Motueka and Kaiteriteri have significant debris and some section are still closed. We will be working to clear this today.
Inland sections of the trail from Richmond to Wakefield and the Spooners tunnel are fine and OPEN.
This easy cycling trail takes a leisurely tour of Tasman's most beautiful coastal and inland areas.
Riders will pass vineyards, breweries,orchards and no end of places to stop and enjoy some quality cuisine.
The complete trail is 174km long, two thirds of which is currently off-road trails but it can easily be broken
down into bite sized portions just right for short morning rides and gentle afternoon cruises.
Tasman's Great Taste Trail is one of New Zealand's Great Rides.
