The 40km, on-road connection between Te Awa at Lake Karapiro and the Waikato River Trails is clearly signposted with the NZ Cycle Trail logo. Look out for these signs en route!
The 40km is undulating with some areas of narrow or no shoulder, so be aware this is a Grade 3 ride and entirely on open country roads.

The Te Awa River Ride walk and cycleway stretches 60km along the Waikato River, from Ngaruawahia in the north to Karapiro in the south..
