About the Trust

The West Coast Wilderness Trail Trust has been established to work independently alongside trail owners, the Grey and Westland District Councils, to promote, develop and manage the trail. The role also involves liaising with local communities and businesses to grow the support for and benefit from the trail. The Trust is not involved in the maintenance of the trail. This remains the responsibility of the trail owners. Contributions to the maintenance and further development of the West Coast Wilderness Trail can be sent to: West Coast Wilderness Trail, c/o Diane Maitland, Westland District Council, Private Bag 704, Hokitika 7842
