Once on the Coolgardie Track get ready for a steep climb for roughly 45min (if you're going fast!) to reach the sealed road. Once at the road it's another 15min to the first radio antennas. From here carry on to the last corner before the large antenna and you should see the track re-starting again shooting off the corner of the road.

Between this point and Mt Davy, it is a mix of small alpine bush and derelict rocky open tops. Keep your jacket handy along here! About 100m from the top of Mt Davy you should see the snow poles heading down towards the ocean and Runanga. Follow these and you should in no time be down at the Rewanui Incline road. Turn left and head out to Runanga.

This trail includes the peak Mount Davy .

Old mine workings, old tramways, open mountain tops, awesome views.

Hard.

- Turn left at the blue peg.
- On the track, there are some side trails, my advice is always to take the track that is heading upwards and you'll be fine.
- Once at the sealed road turn right and head upwards.
- On the last corner before the big antenna, you should see the track restarting.
- Track from here to Mt Davy is hard to follow in some places, so take care and if in doubt turn back.
- About 100m before the summit of Mt Davy follow that snow poles downwards towards Rewanui.
- Turn left when you reach the Rewanui Incline gravel road.

Generally good.

Lightweight fleece top, Long-sleeved thermal top, Seam-sealed waterproof jacket, Windproof jacket, Whistle, First aid kit, Extra food for emergencies, Survival bag, Cellphone, Map

Some small mountain creeks.

Cold wind once out on the tops during most of the year.

The cold wind is very annoying and rough terrain especially on the way down makes it easy for someone to roll their ankle.

Trail Reviews

One of the best routes I’ve ever run. Highly recommend if the weather is good. When following the route down to Rewanui watch out for the sharp turn off the ridge shortly after you cross the stream. It’s easy to miss the small white arrow directing you off the ridge and get stuck on a trapping route with orange markers.

What a great little adventure! A bit of everything in here, including some interesting bits of history along the way. Some huge cairns along the top, which someone told me have been there for a hundred years or possibly longer. A rugged trail, not to be underestimated.

Pick a sunny day and enjoy the views from the tops, plus some lovely bush at either end. Looks out for the old paving stones along the tops towards Mt Davy too, and the huge cairns.
