This track climbs up through the bush and crosses a river behind the lodge at the end of Ngamuwahine Road, before levelling out on a ridge. The track finishes at an intersection with the Leyland O'Brien Tramline Track. Return the same way.
To get to the actual track, you have to climb over the locked gate which is located to the right of Ngamuwahine Lodge. Follow this track and you will get to the actual start of the DOC track.
The Ngamuwahine Stream is known for trout and can be accessed via the Ngamuwahine Track. Licenses are required and can be purchased from Fish and Game New Zealand outlets.
Take Ngamuwahine Road off SH29. The track starts at the end of the road, past the lodge and into the forest.
