Opening in late 2019, New Zealands 10'th Great Walk is an all weather track for trampers & mountain bikes across the Paparoa Range.
From Blackball the track takes you through old gold mining sites, alpine tops, limestone karst landscapes, thriving rainforests and provides breath-taking views.
An iniative from the families of the Pike River Mine disaster as a thankyou to the West Coast communities for their support.
The Paparoa Track travels from Blackball to Punakaiki,
The Pike29 Memorial Track leads to the site of the former Pike River Mine.
