Try out some easy-peezy walking tracks the whole family can enjoy. The Jim Barnett Reserve has gentle tracks meandering through the native bush. You will need to leave your dog behind for this trip.
The Main Track starts at the car park on Waotu South Road and loops around the native forest (only takes about 30 minutes). From here you can head off on a diversion along the Totara Track which is an additional 15 minutes (a bit rough underfoot but very do-able).
There are toilets in the Jim Barnett Reserve and drinking water (and the Main Track is metalled and wheelchair friendly so is suitable for prams and strollers too).
For more information check out the South Waikato Council link.
