A local trail maintained by the Fairlie Lions club.  A pretty ride from Fairlie township to Kimbell pub, approx 11km (2 hours). 

Opihi River Trail Fairlie - Kimbell
Local Riders start from Kerrs Crossing, or Clayton Rd, and the trail follows the river to Stoneleigh Rd near Kimbell.   There are wide verges, along Clayton Rd, that are suitable both for parking, and for riding along if you wish to extend your ride.
