Excellent Council Initiative

The magnificent Te Araroa Trail between Paekakariki and Pukerua Bay has just got better!
Just south of the Paekakariki village, walkers and runners had to put up with State Highway One traffic noise and proximity to get the 600m to and from the bridge over the railway.
The Trail is accessible under the bridge and now, either starting out or finishing, trekkers have a jaunt through the bush beside the railway line.
The first section of track was laid about a year ago and now it has been completed to within 100m of the bridge.
The Kapiti Council does some of its best work on trail development and improvement.
KIN has written several articles over the years acknowledging this positive endeavour, and we happily do so again.
