NOT RECOMMENDED WITHOUT SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN BEFORE: This is an easy walk of about 4 hours that can be tackled when conditions dictate that walking at altitude or in exposed places should be avoided. There is no path to follow but the poles marking the edge of the army area are a very good guide. The walking is on soft “Lahar” material with very few rough areas to traverse, unless excitement is being sought. The walk comprises a simple loop over to, into and up the valley of the Whangaehu River where the man made bund can be seen which is part of the interventions constructed to try and keep any Lahar flow from the mountain within this river valley. If time and conditions allow the “round-the-mountain” track can be reached along with the Rangipo Hut.
