Strap on your helmet or get your walking shoes on and follow this pathway alongside the Mangaone Stream, stretching from Tōtara Road through to Milson Line and Flygers Line.
Depending on what type of walk or ride you're looking to do, you could be cruising anywhere from 0.4km to 11km. The stream connects to the Manawatū River and used to be a hotspot for kai for local iwi, Rangitāne. Although you can walk the stopbanks on both sides, the formed path switches sides at Amberley Avenue. This path is great for short walks or as part of a full city loop.
Total distance: 11km
