The Ashburton/Hakatere River Trail is an easy walk or cycle which follows the Ashburton River from the Ashburton Township to the sea coast at Hakatere. The Trail has an air of tranquility and beauty once the township is left behind, as it meanders through riverside willows and past quiet farmland.

Access Info

This trail starts under the Ashburton River Bridge, you will need to ride the River Trail Loop until you reach Trevors Road where the dual directional track to Hakatere starts. There are signs all along the way telling you which road you are at and the distance.
