New Ruapehu Trails Planned
The Missing Links in our Trails
Not content to work on the interesting trails in the region, the next step is to complete the vision for a truly connected network of pathways. Funding has been secured for new trails (shown as dotted lines on the map).
Our vision is to have all our trails off road or on quiet gravel roads, all at Grade 3 or better. It will take some time, but the team are working hard with the local community to make it happen.
