May 2013 was the groundwork for a possible overnighter in the Coromandel. What was done was based on overnight stays in Thames in 2013 and 2015. The 2015 trip was an overnighter via Boom’s Flats in the Kauaeranga Valley with Day 1 comprising 10km, 886m ascent in 5:20 to Crosbies Hut. Day 2 was 14km mainly downhill ending up on the Karaka Track – 5:20hours. Some big grunts are encountered and quite a lot of mud but all in superb forest with a few views over Table Mountain and others.

NB In 2019 many tracks were closed for various reasons so check with DOC before going.
