Description

The Marton Sash and Door Tramway Trail starts and finishes at National Park Village and is suitable for the whole family. You'll explore relics from the bush tramway era including pumice cuttings, log bridges, a small wooden dam, and rail irons. Start by running next to the main trunk line heading south, before heading west and down towards the Waimarino Stream. You'll see relics of a bygone era, old log bridges, rail irons, huts, dams and tram skidways. You'll also run through pine plantations including 'The Pines' MTB Park in Waikune Forest, before running back up the main trunk line to National Park Village.
