Lake2Lake Trail

1 Lakefront Drive, Te Anau

The Lake2Lake trail runs alongside Lake Te Anau and the east side of the Waiau River to Lake Manapouri. This trail offers a natural, highly scenic and safe recreational experience that will cater for a wide range of users.

The trail can be used in both directions or people can make a loop by returning on Golf Course Road or the Te Anau-Manapouri Highway. The trail surface is gravel which is hard packed in the middle of the trail but does get loose towards the edge so please take care.


This trail is considered a Grade 3 - Intermediate trail based on the Kennett Brothers grading system which is widely used by New Zealand riders. For more information on the grading go here.


Note: Dog access is allowed if the dog is on a leash. Go here for more dog friendly walks and areas in Southland.
