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)

  • Staying Safe

    Moderate.

    Follow the marked track but take care when crossing the numerous slips across the track.

    Generally good.

    Waterproof leggings, Thermal leggings, Lightweight fleece top, Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Gloves, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Cellphone, Map.

    Collected rainwater available at the hut.

    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.
