This scenic 70km river ride is under construction between Ngaruawahia and Horahora, 20km south of the Mighty River Domain at Lake Karapiro. The route weaves through rural and urban landscapes, taking in waterfalls and historic Maori sites as well as trendy shops, cafes and wineries.

Te Awa River Ride
The sections through Hamilton city and between Cambridge and Lake Karapiro are complete and ready to ride now while the remaining sections are due for completion by late 2015. The track will be primarily wide, smooth and largely flat making Te Awa suitable for cyclists of all fitness and experience levels.

Once complete, Te Awa will link with the Waikato River Trails near Horahora as well as other regional cycling highlights such as Hamilton Mountain Bike Track in Pukete Farm Park and the newly completed Avantidrome, near Cambridge.
