This easy grade loop follows Mangatangi Hill Road (aka A R A Drive) , Graeme White Road and Moumoukai Valley Road. Metal roads form a loop with shady spots for picnics; there are also some good swimming holes in the river. The best way is to start from the Mangatäwhiri carpark and follow the river down through the paddocks to Mangatangi Hill Road.
