Ocean to Ocean Trail begins
The Far North Conservation Corps made a start on the new 'Ocean to Ocean' Trail in Northland, March 19. When completed around 2003, the trail will stretch 120 kilometres from Ahipara at the southern end of Ninety Mile Beach, to Kerikeri on the East Coast.
The Conservation Corps began work upgrading track on the existing Mangamuka Gorge Walkway - part of the projected Ocean to Ocean route. Trail organisers in the north expect the work to stop in April when the bush becomes too wet.
