Soldiers Track

Soldiers Track

From the Cambridge town centre, walk south of Victoria Street to Victoria Bridge. The bridge was built in the early 1900s and is about 50 metres above the Waikato River. It’s a great view up and down the the river walking across. On the south side, there is an information panel about the bridge and, nearby, you should be able to see the entrance to Soldiers Track. Follow this as it passes through mature exotic trees and then into native replanting as it drops down close to the river.

Continue on the track until it climbs back up to the river bank near Low Level Bridge (that name!). Cross the bridge for another view of the river. Then walk back up along the short metal road next to the river to a track running along the north side. This low track takes you back to below the Victoria Bridge and is surprisingly photogenic. There were steps near the bridge back up to the road, but these were washed out and may not have been repaired. If not, walk back down the track to Dominion Avenue, then head west to the north end of Victoria Bridge.

This walk takes about 40 minutes or so.
