Beehive Creek Walk
Time: 2-3 hrs | Distance: 4km one-way | Fitness level: low
A family friendly walk, with children able to paddle in the shallow creek.
The walk follows the sandy bed of Beehive Creek through a mixture of native bush and exotics.
It requires several crossings of the normally shallow, gentle stream and then climbs over hilly farmland to reach the Pohangina Valley West Road. Walkers can then return to the starting point along the road or back along the stream. There are good views of the Pohangina Valley and the Ruahine Ranges from the top of the hill.
The Beehive Creek Walkway is not a loop track. It can be walked in either direction, but you will need to shuttle cars if you want to avoid the 3 km stretch of road between the start and finish points. Alternatively you can begin at the creek end, walk as far as you wish and return the same way.
