Trips and Routes

Peters Road to SH3
Waiwhakaiho River - A super low volume run that can only really be run in high water. Fast moving and full of miss on the fly holes that can be pretty sticky at flows where paddling is enjoyable. You want to be pretty comfortable running Class III/IV at high speed on the fly for this run
Alfred Road to Meeting of the Waters
Waiwhakaiho River - A pretty classic Taranaki run, and has good flows more often than many other Taranaki rivers. The nature of the river is pool drop boulder gardens at lower levels and a bit more of a 'freight train' as things get higher. There is a power station about half way down that has a man made weir feature. At lower levels it can be run, first time paddlers on here will want to give it a good look.
Meeting of the Waters to New Plymouth
Waiwhakaiho River - A boulder garden style Class II/III run. Rapids are formed by corners, bouldery areas and some constrictions. This run has some fun wave trains when the water levels are on the higher side
