“A world-class, undulating lakeside trail, finishing at Hot Water Beach.”— Kerry Suter
From there the trail rolls gradually with only a handful of sustained climbs. Functioning toilets are peppered throughout the journey and fresh drinking water can be obtained from 'Twin Streams' (signposted) where groundwater emerges from natural springs very near the twin bridges.
The longest climb, 1.5 km in it's entirety follows Wairua, around 10km into the run.
