This is an easy walk to do and the view is spectacular. The walk starts at the Information Centre in Waihi. There are plenty of informative boards as you progress. The walk is a fabulous way to watch, learn and comprehend. Spend time downstairs at the Waihi Visitor Centre. This is where you will find a magnificent exhibition about the Martha Gold Mine. Martha Mine is a huge hole in the ground and just makes you think and wonder about the things we do.

I searched this on google maps and it looked huge but seeing it is just mind blowing. Its a very large hole. it is like looking down to a sandpit full of tonka toys.

The track around the pit rim is a great additional riding place after you have rode the rail trail to Waihi. It has awsome views and riparian planted areas of bush, and is just an interesting way to see Waihi. The views from teh top of the pit rim are worth the walk or ride.

Its free, interesting and a healthy trip, thats why I like it.
