Te Arapiki a Tāne | The stairway of Tāne

When you want to combine fitness, the great outdoors and spectacular views, then Te Arapiki a Tane should be your destination. Close to 600 steps take you down the cliffside reserve to the Manawatū River on a steep and challenging trail.

Photo shows people climbing steep steps zigzagging up a hillside on the bank of the Manawatū River.

Access is from Te Motu o Poutoa and off Vaucluse Heights, with the steps linking to other river network pathways, including He Ara Kotahi.
