The Waikato River Trails Trust - Our Vision

The Waikato River Trails Trust vision is to create and sustain a variety of exciting walking and cycling trails as an enduring natural attraction which links riparian restoration with enhancement of the Waikato Region as an active recreation destination.

Meet the Waikato River Trails Trustees

The Waikato River Trails Trust was established to plan, construct, promote and maintain cycling and walking trails along the Waikato River and the region's hydro lakes. Without our dedicated trustees, the trails wouldn't be what they are today.
