Pakuratahi River Walk is a family-friendly trail that provides an easy link between the campground at Kaitoke Regional Park and Pakuratahi Forks. You'll traverse a pedestrian bridge over the river and wind your way through stunning mixed podocarp and ancient broadleaf forest.

Swingbridge Loop is a short and sweet trail that takes you across swing bridge suspended high above the Hutt River, then weaves its way downstream towards the river gorge.

You'll be shaded by spectacular ancient Rimu and Rātā forest and have great river views along the way.

Approx 5 km total walk with a slight incline at the start of the walk, but the rest is relatively well graded. Participants need to be able to walk continuously for 1-2 hours comfortably.
