Poutoa Walkway

Enjoy the quiet escape on this dog-friendly walk through valleys of native and exotic plantings. Starting at the Summerhill shops, the path extends down the pristine Poutoa Valley across Ruapehu Drive and on to Cliff Road. Don't be put off by the steep access points – the walkway soon levels out!
