It is currently being developed by the Te Araroa Trust and it due to be completed in 2011. Most of the walk is already open and a number of people have walked the trail, bypassing the incomplete sections.
The straight line distance from Cape Reinga to Bluff is 1475km but the trail itself is 3000km. It takes approximately four months to walk the entire route.
