About Waihi Beach
Waihi Beach Cycle Trail
The identified route is on a mix of private and public land. It heads across country from Waihi to the northern end of Waihi Beach where it arrives at the top of Council's forestry block before descending to the old dam and into the township. There will be great views from the look out point.
This is seen as an informal extension to the Hauraki Rail Trail, giving the opportunity to do a day's ride from Paeroa to Waihi Beach.
The Waihi Beach Trails Trust has designed a loop track around the dam which includes an upgrade of the existing track, an extension and a small bridge. This will form part of the cycle and lookout trails. The Trust is currently fundraising for the project. This could also be under construction by mid-2017 subject to consenting and funding.

Two Mile Creek bank erosion
As part of the 2015-2025 Long Term Plan Consultation process, an agreement was reached with the community to proceed with a project to provide creek bank protection to Two Mile Creek, upstream from Dillion Street Bridge for approximately 200 metres.
