Bridge to Nowhere Walk
1 hr 30 min return
This 3 km walk taking about one and a half hours return. It follows the Mangapurua Stream to the bridge from the Mangapurua Landing on the Whanganui River.
There are two ways to access the bridge site, either by a gentle 40 minute walk from the Mangapurua Landing on the Whanganui River, or by a two day tramp from Whakahoro to the north via the Kaiwhakauka and Mangapurua Valleys.
Plan and prepare
Before you go into the outdoors, tell someone your plans and leave a date to raise the alarm if you haven't returned. To do this, use the New Zealand Outdoors Intentions process on the AdventureSmart website. It is endorsed by New Zealand's search and rescue agencies and provides three simple options to tell someone you trust the details about your trip.
