Te Araroa Trail Itinerary
Mine was a gloriously leisurely thru hike :-) and below is my Te Araroa Trail itinerary. My full Te Araroa Trail experience on and off trail totalled 146 amazing days. I started the trail on 14th October 2017 and finished on 02nd March 2018. Finally, I came back to hike the Richmond Ranges in December 2018.
There were plenty of rest days - 29 to be exact, with 12 on the North island and 17 on the South island. I took rest days for rest, injury, fun,...
After reading this timely reminder from Outside Online magazine, I'll definitely be taking paper maps on Te Araroa trail too!

Te Araroa Trail - Trail Notes
How will I know where to go on TA trail? Each year the wonderful people of the TA publish trail notes and maps for the entire trail.
I've just finished studying them & I've created a wonderful spreadsheet planning my entire trip so I have a vague idea of where I will be when (soon to be published). In the meantime, the official TA info can be found here.
