06Oct18. Great walk in the bush with a nice long, scary if you don’t like heights, suspension bridge.
Some views down to the river.
The first part up to the bridge is said to be wheelchair accessible but I think very bumpy. After the bridge it is definitely not wheelchair accessible.

Excellent, well marked paths through the forest. Good information provided on boards in the carpark including great swimming spot in the river.

45 minute return track at the Pelorus River - featured in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. Nice, easy walk with good views of the beautiful river.

Nice little walk in the morning, water in the river is very clear and with the mountains around it, it is a great view!

nice walk through typical New Zealand forest. The signs are a bit confusing so we had to retrace our steps a couple of times, but it wasn't too difficult.
