Come and enjoy a beautiful walk through Sapphire Springs Nature Trail. Set in the heart of 31 hectares of the Kaimai’s set in nature forest. The Nature trail hosts a pink marked trail and takes about an hour to explore.

The starting point will be at the end of the carpark (in front of the hot pools) and will be a guided group experience, ending the walk with a soak at the Hot Pools.

The Nature Trail has some steep and slippery sections as well as a couple of unbridged stream crossings, therefore we recommend this walk only for those who have a reasonable level of fitness, capable with their own balance and confident with their physical ability.  You’re shoes will get wet from the two stream crossings.
