Take in some of the more significant historical and natural taonga of the region on this section. Stop and read the information about the Te Ārai o Wairau/Wairau Affray and reflect as you ride past the well known watering hole, The Grove Tavern, famous for its dumplings.

Starting at Factory Rd you head south along the Western side of the railway, crossing Speeds Rd then Para Rd. The trail then climbs gently around the Western edge of the Para Wetland providing magical views and wildlife encounter. Just before Tuamarina, you cross the river then run alongside the Tuamarina to the Wairau River. The trail then takes you through to Spring Creek where you join the sealed cycle trail through to Blenheim.
