A fairly easy overnighter in the Rangi (Rangiwahia) Hut with Day 1 having a grunty ascent, which is over within an hour or so, up around a landslip on a good track.

Views, sunsets, and sunrises from the hut can be magic. Day 2 involves a long, slow ascent through tussock to the high point of Mangahuia, then it is virtually all downhill back to the car park. Total distance of 13km with an ascent of just over 900m requires total walking time of just less than 6 hours.

  • Day 1: 4.1kms, 2 hours, 900+m ascent
  • Day 2: 9.4kms, 3 hrs 49 mins
