Distance 23.46 km Duration 6h 15min Ascent 300 meters Length Single-Day Location Waikato Trip Grading Moderate

A fairly hard, long (20+km) 6–8 hour out and back trip from SH32 parallel to the Waihaha River to about 45 minutes beyond the Waihaha Hut on the Hauhungaroa track. There is next to no climbing involved – only 300 metres (GPS) gain / loss, the path is very good in most parts and passes many idyllic fishing spots in this very scenic valley. The trip in seems to take longer than the return but this is mainly due to the fact that everyone stops to check or identify the luxurious vegetation and check out the promising looking fishing spots. Less ambitious trampers can turn round at any point but most make it to the Waihaha Hut.
