Distance 13.5 km Duration 5h 33min Ascent 750 meters Length Single-Day Location Waikato Trip Grading Moderate

A moderate out-and-back tramp of 6 hours covering 6.5km each way with about 750metres ascent and descent each way. The Hihitahi Forest Sanctuary really works and the birdlife is amazing with endless birdsong and many species seen or heard including: Wood pigeon, Blackbird, Thrush, Chaffinch, Tui, Paradise Goose, Bell Bird, Waxeye and Robin. Much of the walk is in good forest with many Cedars being seen along with the usual native species such as Totara. The target – Zeke’s Hut – is a very modern 4 bunk hut with roof water supply and wood-burner but, for some reason, no proper verandah.
