Description

Head East into the holiday park, past the playground, follow the sign to the Kahikatea Walk. Follow the track and turn left at the first two intersections (I suspect going right would be ok too.) When you get to a gravel road turn right and then turn left in 20m to get back on to single track. After a bit you leave the forest and follow a track beside the golf course. When you get to another gravel road head left and follow this to the river. Just before the river you turn left onto a track which skirts the golf course and takes you bake to the holiday park.
