The Rotorua Trails Trust recently opened Te Kōtukutuku Trail at Lake Rotokakahi /Green Lake. Te Kōtukutuku forms part of Te Ara Ahi - Thermal by Bike trail on Nga Haerenga - The NZ Cycle Trail. Track work required the trail builders to be out in some steep and isolated terrain, so the Trust asked the Ground Effect Slush Fund for $1000 to purchase a couple of PLBs (Personal Locator Beacons), and a decent first aid kit for the trail building crew.
The aim of the Rotorua Trails Trust is to develop a network of great multi-use trails across the Rotorua district. Check out what they are up to here: www.rotoruatrailstrust.co.nz and follow them on Facebook.
