The new trail at Te Apiti - Manawatu Gorge will open to the public on Saturday Nov 1st at 8:00am, after a blessing by local kaumatua.  The trail is a result of a partnership formed between DOC and MMBC.  DOC have constructed the trail and MMBC have agreed to maintain the trail.

The trail starts 2km up Hallblock Rd, Woodville and descends 2km through native bush to finish on Gorge Rd, opposite the Bridge Cafe.

Watch the teaser video for taste of the trail, which is hopefully the beginning of more trails in the Manawatu Gorge Scenic Reserve.
