The section of the round the mountain track between Jacobs ladder and the top of the Kokowai Track is closed due to a major slip. You need to use the Kokowai track instead of starting at North Egmont (current at late November 2018 - please advise us of any updates)
Follow the marked track up the razorback and around to Holly Hutt. Initially a steep climb up to the around the mountain track then it follows this around towards the west side of the mountain with an overall descent. Holly Hutt is nestled almost at the base of the main mountain where it meets the Ahukawakawa Swamp. The track also forms part of the Pouakai crossing.
Return by the same route.

The track gets snow over winter which can make it very dangerous
There are a few slips which you need to cross involving a bit of scrambling and taking care trying not to dislodge anything on others. Boomarang slip is the biggest and definitely pays to only cross one at a time as it has a lot of loose rocks.
