This is a out and back along the Waikato River Trail (with a small loop at the Arapunui end ). From Little Waipa head south, following that path for 5km. Here you will meet Powerhouse Road, turn left and head up the road (200m), take the trail on the right and follow this until you reach a concrete path running perpendicular to the river. Head down here and across the swing bridge. Exit the bridge and turn right down the road, across the road bridge and up the hill. On the left you will find the trail again. Head back north to Little Waipa (5km).
