Welcome to the Greytown Rail Trail 

A branch railway line from Greytown to Woodside Station had been disused since the 1950s. In 2010 local residents formed a trust to turn it into into a walking, running and cycling track. The track provides a level 5km route on a smooth, limed path.

Open in places and tree-lined in others, it wanders through farmland between Greytown village and the mountains. It provides access for both the local community and visitors to the area. 

The Trail is used all year round for a variety of activities.  It is popular with all age groups and all abilities and is heavily used by cyclists, walkers, visitors and locals.

Woodside Trail Usage

A community-led project has created a great community asset. We installed a trail counter just before Christmas 2021 to find out and record how many people use the trail. We thought perhaps 10,000 to 20,000 people a year would use it. 

In the summer peak of 2021/22,  6000 people users were recorded in one month!
