Hauraki Rail Trail- Thames to Paeroa section. This starts at the Thames Wharf, and goes across the old rail corridor to Paeroa. This is a fairly flat, wide, gravel track, with occasional small bridges and animal stops as it passes farm tracks and roads. At Paeroa, the track continues straight down a section of road, and crosses into the river reserves, along the top of the stop banks. Turn left and go across the main vehicle bridge if you want to carry on to Te Aroha (right hand track) or through the Karangahake Gorge to Waikino and Waihi (Left trail across the road)
