PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS PART OF THE ARAPUNI SECTION IS STILL CLOSED.
13/02/20 - This part of the trail from Waipapa Dam to Waotu South Road is closed .
A sign posted detour is in place between Arapuni Dam and Waipapa Dam.
There will be no access until further notice. We will keep you up to date with progress.
Accessed from Arapuni Village or the Waipapa Dam this 36.5km section is the most varied on the Waikato River Trails. The section is certainly challenging, graded ADVANCED, but the rewards are numerous. Like the Waipapa section to the south the 16km from the Waipapa Dam to Waotu South Road is quite remote and has no alternative routes off the Trail.
