Departing Palmerston North, headed south, the Te Araroa Trail crosses the Manawatu River on the Fitzherbert Bridge. The hike Brad did yesterday was from Fitzherbert Bridge to Burttons Track (estimated time 8 hours). With a sore knee, 8 hours might have been too much. But, he is somewhere on this section of the Te Araroa Trail. Happy and pain free tracking, Brad.
Second Fitzherbert Bridge 1935 - demolished?
The newest Fitzherbert Bridge crossed by Brad yesterday, as he left Palmerston North.
