Schnell Wetland Walkway

Linking Schnell Drive with James Line, this section of walkway is made up of boardwalks and gravel or grassed pathways. The path rises up from the wetland through the gully up on to James Line just north of the cemetery. Interest points include an old bridge that had been intended for a railway link between Milson and Whakarongo, started in the 1920s and finally abandoned in the early 80s.
