Distance 21.5 km Duration 6 hr 12 mins Ascent ND meters Length Single-Day Location Bay of Plenty Trip Grading Moderate

This is a moderate walk based on distance alone since almost 22 kilometres are covered. Depending on whether there is active logging happening this tramp can be an out-and-back as described or an A-to-B walk exiting on SH5 for Taupo after including the Green Lake as well as the Blue. The walk starts in the magnificent Redwoods and passes through very varied forest after that, including some very regimented looking newer plantations of pine, to reach the Blue Lake which offers toilets and other facilities as a lunch stop. Much of the walking is on well graded forest roads – which can be boring and a bit of a route-march – whilst other sections are on good, almost back-country track.
