Enfield, North Otago
Set in the magic of the Waitaki basin, the White Rocks Gravel adventure is a panoramic roller coaster winding through North Otago’s most spectacular landscapes. Visually breathtaking climbs, exhilarating descents, and a tunnel as well.
The first 3-4 km of the course is tarseal before you enter the gravel, and the first of a number of steep, but brief hill-climbs. Easing off at the top reveals wide-angle views of the Kakanui and Waitaki Valleys, with the awesome Kakanui Range providing the backdrop. Sections of undulating road give way to a glorious descent to Ngapara, and the start of the final climb to link with the famous A2O Trail. The final third of the event swoops down through the Rakis Tunnel [bring a light], and it’s all downhill through the hamlet of Windsor. Meander through the gorgeous old English trees and historic Elderslie Estate. Your exhilaration won’t allow you to linger long, with the thought of the Fort Enfield Tavern, and their warm hospitality just a few km down the road.
