Hokitika Gorge Walk. This is a very short walk to the Hokitika Gorge. The track down to the river is through grand west coast native bush. The first thing you notice is the blue green color of the Hokitika River. The area is about to be upgraded with the creation of a Loop track, better access to the river, more parking, and larger toilets.
In the map above, if you zoom in on the walk, you’ll see all the following track points and their location. Each point has photos along with a description about each one.
A pleasant 33 km drive from Hokitika. There is Plenty of room to park the car.
Walk to the end of the car park to find the track then just follow your nose. I must take my hat off to the boys who cut the track, well done. It is a gradual down hill walk to the stunning swing bridge.
At the other end of the swing bridge turn to the left, there is a rough track running down to the river. You can then rock hop to the next bend.
