Karangahake Gorge, New Zealand

Towards the Coromandel Peninsula, Route 2 passes through the Karangahake Gorge. It’s a region of both historic gold extraction and modern, too, both in massive terms.

But the gorge that hosted early 1900’s industrial scale extraction is now largely cloaked with native bush, with a wonderful rail trail connecting the old gold towns and their ruins.

It made for a great hike today!
