Trails & Walks
When you stay at Hokitika Fire Station Apartments you’re never far from the action. We are a short drive from the Hokitika Gorge Walk and, for cycling enthusiasts, a few minutes from the West Coast Wilderness Trail.
The West Coast Wilderness Trail
A Grade 2 cycleway, part of the NZ Great Rides network, the West Coast Wilderness Trail is suitable for all levels of rinders from novice to experienced. The mountain biking trails around Hokitika provide a variety of rides from ‘easy’ to ‘challenging’ – you can choose whether to tackle a short ride for fun or the full 132km over four days.
The trail winds its way between Greymouth and Ross via Kumara and Hokitika on historic logging and gold mining trails and rewards you with views of coastline, lakes, mountains, rainforest and wetlands.
Mountain bides can be hired in Hokitika from Hokitika cycles & Sportworld on Tancred St or Westside Rides on Woodstock-Rimu Rd.

At the Hokitika Fire Station Apartments, we’ve got secure storage for bikes and outdoor equipment plus a fully equipped laundry and drying room. so, don’t worry about getting wet and muddy, everything is on hand to get yourself cleaned up and back out there – warm and dry!
