Welcome to the Waikato River Trail
The walk is easy from the Arapuni Dam with a steeper section near Jones Landing. In addition by walking another 20 minutes, you can begin or end at Arapuni Village via the swing bridge. Six major dams on the Waikato River (Atiamuri, Whakamaru, Waipapa, Maraetai, Arapuni and Karapiro) have created lakes bordering the South Waikato district. The report highlights opportunities on and around Lake Arapuni (a stunning 35km long lake situated on the Waitomo-Rotorua tourist route) but also provides information about significant other tourism potential within the region. Construction has already begun on a 100km long walking and cycling track adjacent to the Waikato River and six hydro lakes which form our western and southern boundaries, with the first section (from Arapuni village and incorporating the spectacular swing bridge to the power station).
