Rapaki Walk, Martinborough – 1-2 hours loop track
Please note the walk is closed from mid July till the end of August for lambing.
This loop walk across farmland has spectacular views of the Wairarapa valley and Martinborough vineyards. Near the highest point, a stile takes walkers to an optional viewpoint over the scenic Te Muna Valley.
There are some moderately steep slopes and several stiles which need to be negotiated to get up and down from the upper terraces of the track. Still they are easily negotiated and make for one of the best Wairarapa family activities.
Large cattle with horns may be encountered and it’s best to walk around the perimeter of their paddock and pick up the track on the other side. Sturdy footwear is recommended. Children must be supervised at all times. Do carry a cell phone in case of an emergency.
This is a farm and dogs are not permitted.
The track starts 1 km from the eastern end of Dublin Street on Shooting Butts Road, Martinborough.
