Wairake Track starts on the south east side of Mt Karioi, and heads to the summit.
Follow the markers along a farm track for about 1.5km's, here the track veers right and up to meet the bush line. Proceed upwards following the markers until you reach the helicopter pad. The summit marker is a couple steps along. Proceed back the same way you came.
Note that the track does continue along the ridge and down the west side of the mountain.
