Rotorua Trails Trust

1 min read

The aim of the Rotorua Trails Trust is to develop a network of great multi-use trails across the Rotorua district.

Recently the Trust desperately needed a set of good power tools for making signage and doing in the field structure work. The Slush Fund was super happy to help providing $1100 for the purchase of a drill, impact driver, circular saw and three batteries. The tools helped complete the drop retaining work on the Grade 5 Tumeke Trail.

In 2018 the Rotorua Trails Trust 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.
