This is a planned cycleway where the main route from Waihi to Waihi Beach is not yet under construction.
Timing of construction is subject to land owner agreement. Development of local loop trails within the Waihi Beach water catchment reserve and forestry block have started. A new walkway track to the Trig above Waihi Beach is completed. A future lookout platform will be constructed to enhance the experience.
The total length is about 14.6km long.

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.
