You start off straight into a steady climb through farmland, giving you beautiful views of the Waikato. On reaching the bush you'll climb steeply for a little bit before it eases off.

Ignore the 1st turn off to Mangamuka on your right keep going untill you reach North/South junction. Once you reach the Junction head south, Youll soon reach the beaut new hut called Te Whare Okioki. Keep heading south for a little bit longer and you will come to a sign that says Mangamuka hut on your right. Turn here and get ready for some adventure -  this track is slightly overgrown, quite technical and you need to be aware of your navigation and follow the markers! It's mostly orange DoC triangles, however there a few random old-school reflectors and ribbons in a few trees. As soon as you're on this track it's quite a steep little climb and then down to quite a boggy area with cutty grass. If there has been rain or your doing this winter youll be getting muddy! Not far after the bog youll come out at Mangamuka hut, walk around the other side and the track continues on. When you get to Te Tuhi Track it's a left Turn and down you go back down the steep hill that you climbed at the start.
