This is a lovely little track along the shores of Lake Taupo, perhaps less frequented than the more popular Huka Falls and Great Lake trails.
The route starts at the last car park (nearest to Rangatira Point), though it would be just as easy to start at the other car parks at Te Kumi Bay or Te Karaka point. Follow the trail into the bush, turn left at the junction, then follow the trail past Rangatira Point to the end at Te Kumi Bay, then return the same way, this time continuing on to Whakamoenga Point.
On the way, you'll come to a private road but follow this and you'll soon see where the track continues. At the point, there are some flat volcanic rocks on the shore - a great spot for swimming or fishing. Look out for the cave on the way too!
Make Up of Run
Easy Single Track: 100%
Car park at the end of Acacia Bay Road (before it becomes a private road only). You'll see the signpost for the walking track
Plenty of parking on the side of the road.
This one's dead easy. If you take a wrong turn you'll either end up back on Acacia Bay Road or in the lake....
Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Cellphone.
