Distance 29.7 km Duration 16 hrs 1 min Ascent N/D meters Length Multi-Day Location Taranaki Trip Grading Fit

A hard overnighter on what used to be tracks but now routes. Day 1 mainly level on old tramway to un-mapped DoC hunter’s hut then up and over to Rerepahupahu Falls to tent the night. Day 2 noted as 7 hours requires 11 hours to cover the 17-20km of bush bashing with GPS navigation through very hard country with numerous windfalls. Pass over Mt Damper and yet another unmapped hut (Mt Damper Hut). No water on most of the track and only for the fit and brave. For the tourist a nice easy 2km walk from the car park at the end of the track in and out on tourist track to Mt Damper Falls.
Day 1. 12.5km 5 hours N/D
