Distance 20.48 km Duration 5.25hrs Length Single-Day Location Waikato Trip Grading Moderate

A long, over 20km, rather boring walk which can turn into a bit of a route march, especially on poor weather days. Ascend almost 200m within 4km from the start then rolling to undulating terrain for 4km before descending from about 1310m to 978m at the Desert Highway.  In good weather good views of both Ruapehu and Ngauruhoe plus glimpses of Lower Tama Lake and passing close to the new and old Waihohonu huts. Drive to the start (and the return) takes about 1 hour 15 minutes from Taupo.
