The Otago Regional Council has been working hard the past few weeks to help create a trail that celebrate's Dunedin's very own little river - The Water of Leith. The #lovetheleith River Trail is a self-guided, 4km trail for kids and families to get immersed in local nature, connect with the Leith and learn what happens on the river.
Opening just in time for Otago Anniversary Weekend (Saturday 18 March), the #lovetheleith trail will begin at the lower entrance of Ross Creek Trail and take you on a 10 stop journey along the river ending at the harbour mouth next to Forsyth Barr Stadium.
Share your adventure along the trail on social media with the hashtag #lovetheleith between 18 March and 30 April to be in a drawing to win weekly spot prizes from Orokonui Ecosanctuary, as well as the Grand Prize, a 2017 Giant XtC Jr 2 24" kid's bike from us here at Bike Otago. The Grand Prize winner will be announced 1 May.
A map of the trail can be picked up either at the Otago Regional Council's office at 70 Stafford Street, or here at Bike Otago. Head on over to www.orc.gotv.nz/lovetheleith for more information on the trail!
