This track has been constructed by volunteers and local contractors with a goal of linking the towns of Pauanui and Tairua. Beginning at a WW1 Memorial Forest, the trail becomes a boardwalk over mangroves before returning to a well formed metaled path through pine forest and onto expansive views of the estuary and surrounding countryside. This is a self-guided night walk and if you are lucky enough you might catch a glimpse of local night creatures along the trail.

Please note this is 8.5km return walk.
