Distance 16.02 km Duration 4h 12min Ascent 523 meters Length Single-Day Location Hawke's Bay Trip Grading Moderate

A moderate tramp through very thick, mature native forest on a back-country track – a bit of a challenge in places but with some fantastic giant trees to admire and narrow shelves on landslips to tackle. The track is downhill on the outwards direction losing just over 300 metres overall but the return, though uphill, is easier than might be expected with moderate slopes. The track has not been cleared for a long time and care is needed not to trip over the invading flax which also hide erosion damage at the side of the track with large drops to the valleys below. Just on 9km in each direction which can be covered in 2 to 3 hours by competent trampers meaning that the target hut is a good lunch spot.
