The trails cover about 100km of previously inaccessible Southern Waikato land. They wind their way along a path that encompasses the magic and beauty of New Zealand native bush, exotic forest, historic landmarks, interesting rock formations and geological delights.
Be inspired as you walk or cycle through grassed farmland, open reserves, boardwalks over significant wetlands, and expansive lake and river views. Click here to view some of the highlights you can see while walking or cycling along the Waikato River Trails.
Public access to these natural assets has only been made possible by construction of the trails. The driving force behind this project is the keen group of volunteers who are the Waikato River Trails Trust. Interested in finding out more about becoming a Waikato River Trails volunteer?
