all the walking tracks and reserves in the Western Bay District

Walking time; Up to 45 mins return
This bush reserve is located on Loop Road, off State Highway 2, just north of Te Puna.
The land was gifted to QE11 National Trust in 1987 by Keith and Takiko I'Anson. It was their intention that it be transformed from dairy pasture to native bush and remain so in perpetuity for the enjoyment of the public.
From the carpark, where there is a picnic area and toilet, you can follow the walking tracks either way around Lake Taki, through maturing groves of native trees. The reserve continues downstream past more recent plantings to Armstrong Road, making for a pleasant rural stroll.
