An easy 2 hour out and back or circular walk on a well formed track through Montane forest (beech / silver birch for the Europeans) to Silica Rapids passing Golden Rapids on the way. Also pass the junctions to other short walks: “The Whakakpapanui Track” and to the “Whakapapaiti Hut”. The out and back walk can be made circular by exiting to the Bruce Road from Silica Rapids – but this does mean some little distance walking on the road with traffic.
