Be sure to take a torch on this walk to explore the fascinating tunnels once used by gold miners.
In addition to the remnants of tunnels, races and walls of stacked stone you will pass through mature and regenerating forest.
The walk can be covered in under 45 minutes but allow extra time for exploring. Sturdy walking footwear is recommended.
Drive south from Greymouth on SH6 for 8 km to Paroa, and turn left towards Shantytown. From Shantytown it is 17 km to Woods Creek, mostly on sealed road.
The last part of the road currently passes through an active modern mining site. For safety reasons, please obey the signs and stay in your car until you reach the Woods Creek car park.
