Estimated Times to Run







This is a very straightforward trail with no off-shoots. Follow the trail, gradually climbing along the stream for about 1.5km, at the trail split you can go left or right as the section loops back to here. 

This is beautiful native bush running, often on a base of lovely moss.

Amazing moss ('carpet') on the early sections of the trail. many large Kotukutuku (tree Fuchsia), the largest Fuchsia in the world and one of very few native deciduous trees. Consequently there are bellbirds and stitchbirds around, although you will only hear them and rarely see them.

If you know of any public toilets near the trail start or on the route, please login and then let us know so we can update this section.

There is a reasonable size parking area.

12 km

12 minutes




Generally good.

Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Personal Locator Beacon (PLB), Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Survival bag, Cellphone, Map

Several streams and streamlets throughout the run.

Mud could be an issue in winter or after very heavy rain, also the stream could be an issue after heavy rain.

Slippery in places and a couple of short trail sections that require care.
