Dogs: On leash, keep clear of dam areas

 

This track is an easy grade walk offering impressive views over the Wairoa reservoir, good for families of all ages. Starting from the Car park you can make you way up the access road, once you see the toilets you can move to your right up the access road, follow this until you see see the reservoir. This place is truly impressive, the water is bright blue surrounded by rock walls and green forest. Remember to take a break on the wall to marvel at the view. 

Past the Reservoir you veer right up into some native bush, make sure to stop at the lookout on the way to see the Wairoa Dam from another angle. Continue walking through the lush bush and finish crossing a little suspension bridge over a meandering stream. This really is a pleasant walk with plenty of places to take in the views and enjoy a picnic.
