Alexandra Millennium Track

Alexandra Millennium Track

Known by locals as the Alexandra Millennium Track, this walk is part of the shared hike/bike track system around Alexandra and Clyde. This section follows the Clutha River to link the two towns.

The dominant features are the River and extensive block of deciduous trees that have grown near its banks over the last 160 years, as well as the Earnscleugh Tailings. These are a massive and extensive area of stored, 100 year old (plus) tailings from gold dredging on the river and around the region. You can do an interesting loop walk over the tailings, accompanied by the smell of the wild thyme that grows on the mounds of stone and sand.
