Winding its way over tree roots and past massive boulders and towering kahikatea trees, the Mangaotaki Walk also allows for dog walking (with a permit) and great fly fishing (also with a permit).
The Mangaotaki River is ideal for the novice fly fisherman, with no shortage of rainbow trout, with access gained via the Mangoataki Scenic Reserve.
The Mangaotaki Valley is also home to Hairy Feet Waitomo, the filming location for Trollshaw Forest in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
