Estimated Times to Run







From the carpark cross the large swing bridge and head along the single track. You soon reach the first waterfall which is worth a look. Then head up the steep hill which can be gloriously muddy in winter. At the top of the track you reach a lookout over Tongoio falls. From the lookout follow the track up the hill. It meanders through some native bush before skirting around the edge of some pine forest. After a few km's you reach state highway 2. Carefully cross this busy road and head into White Pine bush. This is a short easy little loop with some nice bush. Then cross the road and head back the way you came.

Tongoio and Te Ana falls, White Pine bush features Kahikatea.

Plenty of carparking. As with all DoC carparks do not keep any valuables in your car.

There is no water on the track.

Can be very muddy on the hill.

Be very careful crossing State Highway 2. It is easy to run straight off the track onto the road. It is a busy road and you should stop before crossing.

Mix of tracks (mud, grass, boardwalk), good amount of runnable climb. Take a quick dip in the falls on the way back!

Great track, my kids loved the waterfalls. Was pretty muddy, but that just adds to the fun!
