About this track


This old bridle track passes through a magnificent stand of native bush, with towering rimu and tawa and an understory of leafy hīnau, pukatea, ferns and kohekohe.

The track runs parallel to SH30, from Manawahe Road to Whangaroa Bay on Lake Rotomā.

The track is situated about 40 km north-east of Rotorua beside SH30. The most suitable parking is on Manawahe Road by the junction with SH30.
