This is the Davies Track up tom the summit of the Kaitake Ranges. The track initially crosses farmland (keep to the marked track) for nearly 1km before entering the national park. The track climbs moderately for another 2km before steepening up for the 1.5km as you make your way to the summit. Track is well marked with orange marker poles as well as the pink triangular markers. If you want to make a loop of it you can descend down the Lucy's Gully track (approx 2km) and return to vehicle via the road.
