Standing in mute testimony to the optimism of the early settlers is the Bridge to Nowhere, built in 1936. The lonesome bridge – once part of a long-lost 4.5m-wide roadway from Raetihi to the river – is on the Mangapurua Track. Alternatively, it's a 40-minute walk from Mangapurua Landing, upstream from Pipiriki, accessible by jetboat.
