Duration 7 hrs 25 mins Ascent +/-500 meters Length Single-Day Location Waikato Trip Grading Moderate

A moderate A to B tramp covering 14km in 4-5 hours including refreshment breaks that takes you to the Rangipo Hut then cross-country back to near the Desert Highway passing through the area of the Lahar flow of early 2007. There are a few areas where care has to be exercised since in the summer the ground is rough with ankle turning opportunities and, in wintertime, some of the slopes could be icy. There is a height gain of about 200 metres to reach the hut and a loss of about 400m on the way back down to the road. A few climbs are a bit steep and tricky, especially on the return leg. This tramp can be done in either anticlockwise or clockwise directions
