Red lines are for hiking, dots are for places where I stopped but didn’t necessarily hike
Green lines are for river trips
Blue dots are for scuba diving
Purple dots are cities I stayed in with my friend while hitchhiking
See the Te Araroa’s Website for thru-hiking info
And also check out the LINZ (Land Information New Zealand) maps on NZTopoMaps.com for all the topo maps for New Zealand
I ended up straying from the Te Araroa because I was sick of the road walking, wanted to start hitting the rivers on my packraft, and ended up hitchhiking around from place to place with a friend of mine.
