“A run into the heart of Paparoa National Park.”— Tilman Giese
Most of the track is relatively flat with only few ups and downs. The Inland Pack Track was established in the 19th century during the gold rush to bypass some of the more dangerous coastal areas.
Noteworthy highlights on this track are the Ballroom Overhang, an overhanging limestone cliff next to the Fox River slightly off the track after 12 miles, and the Fox River Cave with impressive stalactites and stalagmites at the end of a short side track about 13.5 miles from the start right after fording Fox River.
