This trail follows the course of the Waikato River from Spa Park in the township of Taupo all the way out to Aratiatia Dam, passing Huka Falls on the way. There are spectacular views from the trail of the splendid Huka Falls, the Waikato River and the surrounding countryside. Points of interest include the Wairakei geothermal power station and the Aratiatia Rapids, which are released at 10am, 12pm and 2pm every day, with an additional time of 4pm during summer only. There is a trail on both sides of the river between Huka Falls and Aratiatia that offers an alternative return ride.
