New Zealand’s tenth and newly created “Great Walk” will open in 2019, with a tentative date of April.  This Great Walk will cross the Paparoa Range and take you through alpine tops, limestone karst landscapes and thriving rainforests. There is also the opportunity to take a side track via the Pike29 memorial track which leads to the site of the former Pike River Mine.

The Paparoa track should really be called the tenth “Great Walk/Ride” as it will be dual use, open to both walkers and mountain bikers year round.

Further information can be found on the Department of Conservation website, where you can also download the Paparoa Track Brochure.
