Te Maire Loop Track

Te Maire Loop Track

Te Maire Loop Track is about 15 kms along the Forgotten World Highway from Taumarunui. There is a bridge over the Whanganui River which takes you to an “island” of old forest. Turn left onto Te Maire Rd and park at the signposted track access.

The walk is a great way to get a sense of the Whanganui River rainforest which once dominated the entire region. Other than this walk, you really need to do a river trip to experience this ancient rainforest.

Returning to the highway, there is an attractive lavender farm and cafe a few more kms on.
