Follow the signposted track up towards the trig. You will follow this track for about 2km until you reach a gate. You will see a sign indicating the direction towards the Trig on your left (don't go past gate as it goes no where). Follow this track and it will take you around the hill side giving you some amazing views and then a steep climb for the final section to the trig.

Return the way you came.

Wild Explorers

I did it!
  • Access

    State Highway 25 between Coromandel and Te Rerenga (it is signedposted as a look out point from either direction you come)

    Small amount of parking on the side of road.

    5 km

    7 minutes



  • Staying Safe


    Just keep an eye out for the orange track markers

    Generally good.

    Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Gloves, Beanie/thermal headwear, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Survival blanket, Cellphone, Map.


    While I was there the track condition was excellent, but I could image it would get very muddy after rain. The clay slopes would get very slippy.

    Keep to track at all times and do not be tempered to go look into a mine shaft!
