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.
