Thanks to a concerted effort following August’s weather event, the majority of Nelson’s tracks are now open!

A few tracks do remain closed for a variety of reasons, including resource consent processing (Pipers Reserve), needing a new bridge (Coppermine Trail), and bridge repairs (Piwakawaka Track, Marsden Valley).

The remaining closures are shown on the maps below.

  • Medium-long term closures (shown by a dotted red/black line) will be in place for more than 4 weeks
  • As we get closer to re-opening a track, the line will be changed to red (indicating it is a short-term closure) .

Visit our website for the latest track openings.

Maps are updated as the closed status changes.
