This is a pretty hard, 17km tramp on badly over-grown tracks into the Upper Whirinaki Hut then onwards following the Taumutu Stream to meet the Whirinaki–Central Hut track. Depending on time of year, time available and fitness, it is only a few kilometres to head north to the Central Hut but think about this as there is still quite a long way to go outwards passing and visiting the “cave”. After the cave it is a bit of a grunt back up the hill to the Plateau Road carpark and overall there are over 700 metres of ascent and descent.
