Gums Loop Details
A gentle amble through gums trees and regenerating native bush, this track provides a pleasant entry to the Wainuiomata Waterworks Recreation Area. The best way is to start at the car park on Reservoir road and head north up the gentle climb. There's a cool little swing bridge to cross before you loop back down the other side of the valley river. Look out for ruins of a house used by workers during construction of the reservoir dam. There are also picnic spots along the river.
Watch kids near the bottom part of the track, just before the Wainuiomata Memorial Garden exit, as there is a narrow part of the track with cliff on one side.
You can access the track from either Reservoir Road or Hine Road (Wainuiomata Memorial Garden).
