Fiordland Trails Trust

"Creating a buzzing outdoor recreational scene around Te Anau & Manapouri."

 

Formed in September 2007, The Fiordland Trails Trust was established to enable the provision of a high quality interconnected network of trails in and around Fiordland for non-motorised recreational activity.

DonateHalf Marathon 2021

Lake2Lake Trail – Te Anau to Manapouri

The Lake2Lake trail runs alongside Lake Te Anau and the East side of the Waiau river towards Lake Manapouri.

The total length to Manapouri will be 28km. The first 19km from Te Anau to Balloon Loop and last 4.7km from Manapouri to Supply Bay Road is now open for walkers, runners, cyclists and any other non-motorised transport (e-bikes welcome).

The trail is mostly 2.2-2.5m wide and is rated “Grade 2 Easy”.

The trail can be used in both directions or people can make a loop by returning on Golf Course Road or the Te Anau-Manapouri Highway.

A 41km loop can be created up Mt York Road and along Ramparts Road, past the lookout, returning to town via the Te Anau-Mossburn Highway.

Other Trails in the Area

The Trust has their own strategy which incorporates a recent study of the cycling opportunities in Fiordland, along with a broader list of projects that we hope to undertake in the coming years.
The current priority for the Trust is the Te Anau – Manapouri Lake2Lake Trail.

Visitor Centre to Ivon Wilson Recreation Reserve Walk

Easy walk and Bike Track

This is an easy walk to a pretty urban park in a peaceful setting, with a fishing lake for children and a mountain biking track.

Fiordland Trails Trust – Lake2Lake 

 

Cycle Track

The Lake2Lake trail runs alongside Lake Te Anau and the East side of the Waiau river towards Lake Manapouri.  

Te Anau to Te Anau Downs

This is our next project 

Still very much in the conception stage, and in the process of applying for grants

 

Perenuka Mountain Bike Park

Mountain Biking Trails

Just 6km from Te Anau town centre on the corner of Sinclair Road there is a growing single track playground for mountain bikers.

Lake Monowai/Borland Road area

Mountain Bike Trail

If you like to get out there into the wilds, away from the crowds but still amongst stunning Fiordland scenery, then this area has lots of spots for you. 

Hollyford Valley

Mountain Bike Gravel Road

The gravel road from the Hollyford Road turnoff to the road end (16 km) is a very scenic road following the Hollyford River.

The amazing team at Wild Rides - Bike Fiordland have donated this fantastic bike as a spot prize for the Meridian Hydro half marathon and Mitre 10 Te Anau 10k. It's a Norco Storm, valued at $750 RRP - how good would this be to take home after Saturday's event?
Remember, there are still some spots available in the half marathon event, check out the details here: fiordlandtrails.nz
