Starting at Rosie Bay, the track follows what was a traditional Māori route to Lake Kaitawa. It follows a valley which arcs around the trailing edge of the landslide block which slid from Ngamoko – see Lou’s Lookout description in Lake Waikaremoana area short walks.
It features grassy clearings and some beautifully formed totara and matai trees.
After passing through dense bush the track descends gradually to Lake Kaitawa.
Lake Waikaremoana is located in Te Urewera on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
