E1 | Manawatū Gorge Track
The Manawatū Gorge Track is just over 11km long and spans the Tararua Ranges. It is located on the southern side of the gorge within the Department of Conservation’s scenic reserve. It is a popular walking track due to its close proximity to Ashhurst and Palmerston North City and the beautiful native biodiversity on display.
Stunning views of the gorge and beyond are possible along the way and while quite steep at either end, it is relatively accessible for a broad range of users.
