Policies and procedures
Resources, templates and policies to help tracks and trails groups with governance, health and safety, risk management, finances, employment, volunteers and charitable status.
Working with DOC
DOC can provide help and advice on how to develop your trail in a way that supports our environment and protects nature.
GIS for community groups
If your community group wants to use GIS, use this guide to prepare a helpful requirements document before you reach out to others for help.
Inclusive design for disabled people
We want to create more accessible recreation places so disabled people have greater access to outdoors and green spaces.
Protecting archaeological heritage
The Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga Act makes it unlawful for any person to modify or destroy any part of an archaeological site without prior authority.
Naming tracks with care
It is important when your trail building group names a new track that it accounts for the history, geography and culture of the area.
Herenga ā Nuku advocates for shared pathways for cyclists, walkers, horse riders and other active transport users as a part of our support for outdoor recreation.
Cyclists and mountain bikers
Herengaā Nuku helps negotiate public access to trails for cyclists and especially mountain bikers.
