A couple of very short, generally very easy walks in beautiful forest with a few giants and many birds. The Sanctuary walk takes about 90minutes and has short section of uphill but nothing that really tests the legs or lungs.

Old Fort Road recreational area loop walk has very little altitude involved – 81metres of ascent – only covers just over 3.5km and can take one to two hours depending on how fast one walks

Best to do the Tree Sanctuary walk first – only 3.5km through beautiful forest.

If the Mountain Bike track is added to your tramp, take care when you reach the Okurapoto Road T junction. Take the left road following the red bike sign. The right side road will take you a lot further on the more recent extension of the mountain bike track.

The H tree is on the left hand half of the Loop Walk.
