The Great Taste Trail is Nelson-Tasman’s contribution to Nga Haerenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail.
It starts at Nelson airport and runs mostly along he coast to Kaiteriteri and then runs through the Motueka valley and over the Dovedale Saddle to Wakefield and back to Nelson.
Can’t do the latter bit at the moment – that’s where the big (2000 hectares) forest fire is that’s been raging since Tuesday.
I’ve done about 75% of it – some bits of it multiple times – without slavishly following a schedule.
And boy, do you get some views.
This is looking out towards Nelson from the boardwalk that follows the estuary.
You either bike there.
Worth it, though
