Avalon to Silverstream
From Avalon Park you can use the concrete footpath along the stopbank to Pomare or follow the sealed trail along the river berm. There is a good swimming hole just north of Fraser Park.
Pass under the Pomare Rail Bridge and follow the Trail as it goes past Stokes Valley and into the confines of Taita Gorge. This area is very popular for dog walking and picnics. From here it is a 1km walk or cycle ride to the Silverstream Railway Station.
