Beginner - Intermediate
Start at the carpark and head up the Waimoku Track . This takes you through the amazing redwood forest to begin with before turning into native bush. The track climbs steadily with some steep and slippery sections before you gain the upper ridge line with some undulations. You will then be climbing again to a signpost for the Sefton Ridge Track. Turn right here. Take the Sefton Ridge Track back down the hill leading you back to the carpark.
