Nelson Tasman trail receives sign makeover
Published 23 January 2014
A walking and mountain biking trail near Nelson has been given a makeover with the installation of signage and route markers to make it easier for outdoors people to find and enjoy.
The previously unmarked 13.9km trail passes through open country and pine forest, linking the Barnicoat Walkway to Easby Park in Richmond and other tracks in the Richmond hills.
The signage upgrade is the result of a collaborative effort between the Nelson City Council and Tasman District Council, with funding support from the New Zealand Walking Access Commission.
Commission Chairman John Forbes said the new signage was a cost-effective measure that would make the trail easier to locate and follow, resulting in a much improved recreational asset for the region.
This is an access corridor that has been available for years without being widely known. The project to signpost it is a great example of councils and the Commission working together to provide much-needed information.
