Distance 5.75 km Duration 4:58 mins Ascent 590 meters Length Single-Day Location Waikato Trip Grading Fit

First move is to tramp in the 12.5km (6hours) to the Waipakahi Hut via Umukarikari. Junction Top itself is on private land and a permit has to be obtained before setting off. The walk up and down takes 4 to 5 hours depending on the ability to tackle a steep climb on a very rough back country track. The first part is in thick bush but most of the walk is on open ridge from where there are fantastic views. There can be slight confusion at the top where one can imagine one has gone past Junction top towards Te Raketuangiangi. Permission required
