New shelters welcomed on Te AraroaTrail
A new shelter is now open on the Te Araroa Trail on the Pamerston North and Levin section beside Tokomaru Valley Road and not far from the Mnagahao Road intersection. The new shelter was recontructed by NZ Defence Force at Linton Military Camp from an original delapidated 3 bay implement shed. At present the shelter has a table and some chairs, but in the future a toilet is planned. This shelter is some five hours walk from a new PNCC campsite in Gordon Kear Forest, while the next southern shelter is around six hours walk to the Matahika Adventure Centre.
