Originally a six-foot horse and cart route, then a tramping track, the Kaiwhakauka Track is a rewarding addition to the Mountains to Sea Cycle Trails.

Distance: 27Km
Grade: 4
Average Time: 5-7 hours
Start: Blue Duck Station at Whakahoro
Finish: Mangapurua Trip

The twin valleys – Kaiwhakauka and Mangapurua – share fascinating and ultimately sorrowful WWI settler history, with the iconic Bridge to Nowhere a fittingly forlorn finale to the story.
