In the North West corner of the South Island of New Zealand a ghost has awakened. A long-forgotten gold miners’ road has been revived as a mountain biking and tramping trail – connecting the old dray road in the Lyell (Upper Buller Gorge) to the mighty Mokihinui River in the north. The 85km-long Old Ghost Road traverses majestic native forest, open tussock tops, river flats and forgotten valleys.

Property Facilities

Accommodation on the Old Ghost Road consists of comfortable, well insulated backcountry huts and rustic summer sleepouts for those looking for some privacy.

General Room Facilities

All huts are equipped with mattresses, gas cookers, and cooking equipment.

Car Parking

Carparking is available at both the Lyell and Seddonville trail heads.
