This is an easy to moderate one-day tramp passing the new Waihohonu Hut , visiting the old historic Waihohonu Hut then returning with a diversion to the Ohinepango Springs. The first part consists of 1:30 to 1:45 minutes walk into Waihohonu Hut on first rate, virtually level track then having morning tea, though there is view-point after about 1 hour on the way in where a stop can be made. Another 30 – 40 minutes takes you to the old Waihohonu Hut which now is classified as a historic building. The next diversion is a spur walk to the Ohinepango Springs and it should be noted that there is one extremely steep, often slippery descent getting to and from the springs. There is, however, a rope on this slope to help get up and down. The whole tramp can be completed in around 5 hours to 5:30 minutes and there is very little gain or loss of altitude on the walk.
