Partial closure of trails during COVID-19

We need your help! We’re concerned about the potential for COVID 19 to spread when you touch the gates on our trails. We’ve seen an increase in people using the trails since lockdown, so to keep our community safe we’ve closed parts of our trails where people have to open a gate to access the trail. Some gates cannot be permanently left open due to either design, stock and risk of unauthorised vehicles

On the same hand we’ve done our best to open as many gates on the trails, so people don’t have to risk transmission. If you find any damage done by motorbikes or see any intimidating behaviour please report immediately to 06 835 9200 or 0800 108 838. We’ll regularly review the gate closures to see if we can open more or if we need to close more.

See our map to find out where you can still cycle. The iWay networks will remain open in Hastings and Napier.

We recognise that people will be wanting to get some fresh air, but we ask that if you want to walk or bike on the trails that you only do so close to your home, keep 2m away from others, and only ride or walk with the people in your household. Do not drive to the trails for a walk or ride. If a gate is closed please do not touch it. Turn back, find a new safe route and wash your hands.
