Starting at the toilets near the Swingbridge you want to turn on the left hand trail just before the Swingbridge (you can detour onto the swing bridge on the way back)
You will be treated with lovely undulating trail under old pines. At 1.6km you will cross the main road at the dam, look out for trucks and cars! Just across the road there is a bit of gravel parking area, which is where the trail begins again. The trail follows the Waikato River and has lots of wee ups and downs, really picturesque and pretty. You will come to your longest climb - the 5 min detour up to the lookout is highly recommended. Youll then make your way down the hill to Jones Landing camping ground.
Return the same way.
