Description

This trail forms part of the Te Araroa Walkway and both a walking and bike trail, well formed gravel path that winds alongside the New River Estuary on the outskirts of Invercargill and heads towards Bluff. I recommend making it a return trip (half marathon), but if you have someone who can drop you off or pick you up then the 10.7k is a nice one-way off road training option.
