Mangapohue Natural Bridge
The Mangapohue Natural Bridge walking trail on Te Anga Road west of Waitomo is a highlight on the scenic drive to Marokopa on the West Coast. A boardwalk through an impressive limestone gorge leads to the Natural Bridge, a spectacular 17 metre-high limestone arch spanning the Mangapohue Stream and all that remains of an ancient cave system.
A loop track (20 minutes return) passes under the bridge and continues over a farm trail. Look out for 25 million year old fossilised oysters exposed in the limestone outcrops. At night there are wonderful glowworm displays.
