Starts with a climb up through farmland before you head into the bush where you start along the ridgeline steadily climbing your way to the Trig.

The track does continue past the Trig, getting a little more remote and unmarked, ending up at Otanewainuku.

  • Staying Safe

    Moderate.

    Make navigation of this route super-easy by using the RunHunters app on your phone. View on RunHunters .

    Straight out and back, although there are a few small route choices along the way which just loop back to each other after a few hundred metres.

    Very patchy.

    Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    None!

    Good all year around.
