Wellington extends its reach
2nd August 08
Kapiti Mayor Jenny Rowan today opened the Waikanae to Paekakariki section of Te Araroa. The Friends of Waikanae River group joined members of Te Araroa Wellington Regional Trust to guide 40 other walkers on this latest 22km section of the Cape Reinga to Bluff trail. It ended with a sausage sizzle at Paekakariki, where walkers described the trail section as "easy but interesting" - so easy in fact that after bolting their Paekakariki sausage, a few hardy souls walked back again.
For a full description of the walk please see the 'Trail Maps' section on this website. Descriptions of two other Wellington sections of Te Araroa are also available there.
