Keep safe
on the trail

Trail closure

The trail north of Seddon is closed at Awatere River because the river had flooded and undercut the pathway. Trail closed signs are in place. Work is planned to realign the route over this 50m section. 

Construction hazards

The trail is a work in progress and Contractors are managing Health & Safety risks.  To keep safe please adhere to all safety signs and barriers.  

Safe cycling and walking

As we open sections of the trail, we'll post our safety information here. Some of the trail passes through private land and working vineyards. As responsible users of the trail it is vital we follow the landowners' safety rules.


The Trust is grateful to all the generous hosts who allow us to cross their land.
