Waipapa Dam to Waotu South Road.

Please note that while the forestry work for this section has been completed this section is still CLOSED as there is rockface stabilisation works above the trail being undertaken at Waipapa Dam.

We appreciated your patience and will advise once completed.

TRAIL UPDATE: 7th July 2018

TRAIL SECTION: Whakamaru Section (between MiCamp and Lake Whakamaru Reserve) is now open.

However, please note the road barriers are still on the trail and you will need to go over them.  We will advise once these barriers have been removed and new barriers are in place.

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.
