Tapuwae Tairāwhiti Trails Trust's major current focus is Te Ara o Taruheru/Taruheru River Trail.

We are working alongside mana whenua, council and the community to progress the development of a safe route from the end of Ngā Wai Weherua (City Rivers) Trail at the river end of Grey Street, generally following the Taruheru River to Campion Road and beyond. We believe this project, included in Gisborne District Council's Long Term Plans since 2018, is achievable and will bring numerous benefits, connecting the eastern suburbs to secondary schools and recreational activities.

We hope to make safety a priority for people walking, riding bikes, scootering, skateboarding, wheel-chairing, and riding a mobility scooter, while not disrupting car traffic and keeping the trail affordable. There will be community engagement on all options for the trail in the first half of 2024.
