The section from Woodstock to Tapawera is on the Motueka Valley Highway and has more traffic than other on-road sections, especially in the summer. Please take care and keep left at all times.
After about 9km, Stanley Brook Hill requires a good bit of effort to ascend and then provides some great momentum for the roll down into Tapawera village. You can get a meal, purchase supplies from the small supermarket and brush up on some local history at the Railway or War History Museums.
From Tapawera Village you can re-join the Great Taste Trail and follow it all the way to Kohatu. Look for the trail entrance on Maitai Crescent.
