Description

This track takes you through lovely beech forest directly up the hill until you clear the treeline and are rewarded with stunning views over the Makarora river and across to the Southern Alps.

In the Central Otago region, it can be hard to find a nice track with tree cover, so this trail is a blessing with forest covering you most of the way.

The track is mostly straightforward; occasionally there are some small treefalls/slides where you might need to keep an eye out for the orange markers.

You could also continue to scramble further past where the DOC track/topo-mapped track ends towards Mt Shrimpton.
