Hauraki Rail Trail: Paeroa - Waihi
Out and back on a lovely rail-to-trail. Smooth gravel following the Karangahake Gorge. Lots of people out mostly on mountain bikes. Part of the trail was not on the rail bed and offered some nice swoops and turns. The country was very interesting. Sometimes it looked like Oregon, other times California, and then you come smack into a forest of tree ferns.
