About the walk
10.4km one way
This is not a particularly scenic trail, as most of it runs alongside the Tauranga Eastern Link (State Highway 2). It is best cycled, however it is a shared path so walkers are also welcome.
The Papamoa to Paengaroa Trail runs from the end of Bell Road in Papamoa following the Tauranga Eastern Link, then the Te Puke Highway into Paengaroa Village.
There are a number of eateries in Paengaroa, make sure you check out The Funky Lizard, Comvita New Zealand Visitors Centre, the Trading Post Restaurant.
In the coming years, residential development in Papamoa will enable Tauranga City Council to connect to the cycleway.
