Head out on the trail, it is open and nice running at the start. After nearly 1km you will come to Lake Rotohokahoka. It gets a bit technical around the edge so take care. 

At the far end of the Lake there is a sign, take the left hand turn and just short of 3km you will come to another sign. Take the turn towards West Road and Picnic Area.

Follow this trail through to the end at West Road. Here you turn and retrace your steps. Once you get back to the sign, again retrace your steps. Then at about 7.5km you will get to the sign near the lake, take the left turn this time and at the next turn at about 7.9km. Then follow the easy fast trail back to the start.

  • Access

    Find your way to South Road in Mamaku - the school is on the corner. At about 10km from the corner watch out for a slight clearing on you right with a DOC sign for Mokoihaha Track.

    There are a couple of slightly off the road spots to park if it is dry. Otherwise by the side of the road but as far off it as you can safely get (gravel road).

    78 km

    68 minutes



  • Staying Safe


    There are several places where you need to stop and figure out where the next orange triangle is. However if you take the time it should be no problem.


    Waterproof leggings, Thermal leggings, Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Gloves, Beanie/thermal headwear, Personal Locator Beacon (PLB), Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Survival bag, Cellphone, Map.

    Water in the Lake is dubious for drinking. Other than that, there is really nothing. Take enough for the duration.

    Windfall, tree-roots, slippery banks.
