Tawa Loop - Manawatu GorgeBeginner
Submitted by Tim Carpenter
From the car park head along the track next to the main road, and then cross under the road at the bridge.
Follow the track around until the junction and choose a direction (loop can be done both ways).
Follow the track to the top and follow signs to complete the downhill loop.
To extend, instead of starting down, continue straight up the track and you can run through to the Woodville end of the gorge, or complete laps of the loop for hill reps.
There is also the lookout down to the 'Big Slip'.
At the top of the loop there is a large metal Maori statue with history of the area.
There are currently no members to show for this trail.
