An easy A to B walk of 4 to 5 hours in dry weather, suitable also for a cross-over walk with one party heading north and the other south. Consider carefully in wet weather. The route uses the now hardly-used Whakapapaiti Hut track then branches north westwards to Whakapapa passing the track to Silica Rapids on the way. The first couple of hours are on fairly good, underused track which does have wet areas with boardwalk. After crossing the Mangahuia Stream there is a bit of a climb to the junction with the Whakapapa-Whakapapaiti Hut track – this junction can be quite badly flooded during wet periods. The track is then in fairly good state but does undulate a bit.
