Hauraki Rail Trail - From the old Waihi Train station, out through the Victoria Battery site, to the Waikino Tavern Bridge. This is a beautiful gravel surface track, winding alongside the river, through farmland, and under trees. It follows the old water pipe line from Waihi out to the Victoria Battery gold processing site. Slightly downhill in this direction from Waihi to Waikino. The track continues through the gorge to Paeroa, where connects to both Thames and Te Aroha.
