Piriharakeke Walkway, Foxton

Piriharakeke Walkway - Entrance gate to walkway

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.

This the length of the trail. 3.6km
Time needed to comfortably complete the trail. 2hr for round trip

This is a walking track. Along this trail you are able to walk your dog.
