This one is a little different. While we have provided a map of one possible run, the Milnthorp Reserve has a labyrinth of named trails criss-crossing the whole area of mixed old man pine, gum and native bush and you can spend a good few hours running around the many trails in the bush occasionally popping out onto the lovely Milnthorp beach or the blue clear waters of the Parapara Estaury. Run any 10k route on these trails to earn your 59 Wild Explorer Pts.

There are maps available at the carparks - grab one and get lost ..oh and look out for artwork in amongst the trees.

  • Access

    This trail network can be accessed from either a small Carpark on Highway 60 Takaka Collingwood road or from the village of Milnthorp.

    There's ample parking in the carpark on Highway 60 or on the sea front in Milnthorp.

    5 km

    5 minutes



  • Staying Safe


    It's a maze of trails but there are maps available at the carparks or just run around getting lost. It is safe though as it's not a huge area and is hemmed in by the sea on two sides and road on the rest.

    Generally good.

    Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Cellphone, Map.

    No water - bring your own with you.

    Pretty sheltered in amongst the trees bring towel for post run swim the sea is crystal clear.
