New rail trail opening day

A big open day is being planned for the opening of the Pūkorokoro (Miranda) to Thames section of the Hauraki Rail Trail, taking in the unique ecology and sea views of the Shorebird Coast. Festivities begin at 8.30am on Saturday September 9 at Kōpū (Thames side of the Kōpū Bridge on SH25).

You can hire bikes or bring your own and take advantage of free shuttle services to return to either end of this new part of the trail or several points along the way. Walkers are welcome too.
