We will keep you up to date as things progress.



The section of the trail is closed between Waotu South Road to Waipapa Dam.
Due to harvesting operations this section of the trail is closed until further notice.
Tour Aotearoa riders please use sign posted detour from Arapuni Dam to Waipapa Dam via Arapuni Road, Rotongata Road and Waipapa Road.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

The Waikato River Trails follow New Zealand's longest river through native bush, exotic forest, remote farmland, boardwalks, streams and suspension bridges.

Experience the unseen

The trails cover about 103km 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, run or cycle through grassed farmland, open reserves, boardwalks over significant wetlands, and expansive lake and river views.
