Distance 12.73 km Duration 7 hrs Ascent 530 meters Length Single-Day Location Bay of Plenty Trip Grading Moderate

Total driving time to the start is 1:30 min. This is a moderate tramp with a lot of off-track ascending and descending through steeply sloping native forest on the east side of Lake Okataina. Overall altitude gain is 430 odd metres whilst the total ascent is nearer 530 metres. The descent is even steeper than the ascent. The target of the tramp is visiting several giant Rata Trees (These are considered trees due to size with the largest seen having a circumference of over 45 feet – that is almost 14 metres). Overall time required was 7 hours but a long time was spent at each of the giants.
