Enjoy views of the Manawatu River loop and farmland while learning about the history of the area from historic signs and photographs along the walk.

Access: Start at the corner of Purcell St and Harbour St. A short 1km loop track in the trees affords views of the river and can be walked or cycled.

For a longer walk exit the pines after 500m onto the grassy track through active farmland, and onto the Moutoa Floodway stopbanks via step-over styles. The walk is 3.6km-long (one way). Allow about two hours for the return trip or arrange a ‘pick-up’ at the northern end of the Trestle Bridge.

Note: Partially formed track/surface. Take care to leave gates open or closed as you find them. Stop banks may be grazed by stock.
