From Duntroon you head south-west to the unique rock formations known as Elephant Rocks [6km]. An off-road trail then takes you through several farms. You rejoin the road at Prydes Gulley which takes you to Island Cliff [13km] which is surrounded by limestone escarpments. Keep veering right on the road until you get to Karara Creek where you go off-road again.
A series of gravel roads (Cants, Peaks then Tunnel Rd) take you to the Rakis Railway Tunnel [27km] where there is a toilet, picnic spot and drinking water. Next stop is Windsor [33km], then an off-road section of trail takes you through farmland to Enfield [42km] and onto Weston [48km] where you rejoin the old railway line for a flat run to Saleyards Rd.
Follow the sealed cycleway downhill to the Oamaru Gardens. Bike through the gardens, across SH1, then through the park to the main street (Thames Street). Turn right into the far lane and ride south past the i-SITE, turning left on Itchen St, right onto Tyne, then left onto Harbour St. Go through the Victorian Historic Precinct to the Oamaru Harbour where the trail ends at Friendly Bay and the Pacific Ocean!
