Sadly, the 2024 ride has been cancelled due to extreme fire risk.

The next Danseys Pass Trail Ride will be held on the 22nd of March 2025.

Danseys Pass Trail Ride is the longest one day trail ride in both New Zealand and Australia! With over 165km of tracks through private high country farms, braided rivers, forestry, native gorge and rolling farmland in the stunning Waitaki Valley.

The tracks are completely redesigned each and every year, creating a unique, varied and challenging day out for riders of all ages and experience. Our tracks include: Family, Junior, Intermediate, Advanced Tussock, Advanced Trees and Extreme. No two rides are ever the same! Many of our riders return year after year!

Since it’s conception in 1999, the annual Danseys Pass Trail Ride has had well over 20,000 riders take on the challenge. The money raised from this event directly benefits the children of Duntroon School with effects filtering out to the wider community.

As always we genuinely appreciate all of our riders, land owners and volunteers. We would especially like to thank our Track Sponsors: Bennett Transport, Apex Engineering, Vetlife, Central South Island Helicopters and Calect Electrical for their support.
