A tramp which is not too demanding physically but which does have a few sections requiring a fair amount of nerve and skill in descending and ascending rather steep, tricky slopes. The whole walk normally takes about 5 – 6 hours with stops for lunch and morning tea. Different routes in and out add to the variation and make up for the lack of views on this forest walk. Inwards is through very dense forest starting on a pretty good track which meanders in and out of the valleys of this relatively dissected area. The return trip is made longer by using the quad-bike track but this has no severe slopes as most of the track is wide and pretty gentle. The highest point on this tramp is in the car park and there is an overall loss of almost 250m getting to the Tauranga Taupo river and the waterfall whilst there are about 400m of ascent in the whole walk.
