The Methven region offers visitors an array of hiking & walking experiences.
The region’s walkways feature a combination of short walks suitable for the whole family, to challenging multi-day hikes across high country conservation land for the serious tramper.
Personal locator beacons, owned by Methven Search and Rescue, can be hired through Hammer Hardware on the Main Street of Methven (Phone 03 302 9664) and are a must have item for people heading into the back country. These beacons (weighing only 250gms) once activated, will enable emergency services to pinpoint you to within 50 metres and organise your rescue. $10 per day, $20 a weekend, and $30 a week.
