Please keep in mind and pass the message on.Dog owners, let’s care for our native birds and our farm stock. Dogs are stressful and detrimental to birds and wildlife, so if an area says no dogs, it means no dogs, not ‘dogs allowed if under control and well behaved’. If you have permission to take your dog with you, keep it under control.

Activities Nearby

Dog park

This is a fenced, off-leash dog park on the corner of Cotter and Pierce Streets. It is perfect for your dog to burn off some energy before a walk along the trail, where your dog must be on a lead.

Barr Brown Bush Reserve

The Barr Brown Bush Reserve in Underhill Road is conveniently on the path of the Tauwharenikau Trail in Featherston.

Proposed skatepark

A skatepark has been proposed at the Cotter Steet end of the trail. South Wairarapa District Council plans to start construction in late 2024.

Funding

Apart from a small amount of initial support for seeding the planning phase of the Tauwharenikau Trail, no ratepayer money has been involved in the construction of either trail.

Want to Help?

Upkeep of the Greytown Rail Trail and the off-road trail sections of the Tauwharenikau Trail is funded through sponsorship and donations and a lot of voluntary effort. The trust organises and manages the Greytown Country Market
