This is the most challenging of the Motu Trails and it's isolated and rugged - a one day wilderness adventure. Twenty three kilometers of the trail is singletrack. It crosses 24 bridges and one of them is a 30 metre long swingbridge. The last 21 kms take you along roads to Opotiki on the coast.
The trail is an alternative to the Motu Road Trail or can be combined with it to form a loop.
