About this track


This 16.5 ha reserve is a mixed podocarp and beech remnant, rich in kahikatea, tōtara, beech, matai, tawa and kowhai. Native birds are plentiful, with spring being a good time to visit as tūi and bellbirds are attracted to the many flowering kowhai trees.

You'll need to climb down a bank and cross a stream to start the track. The track itself is easily walked as it climbs and descends to the picturesque Tangarewai Stream.

Use the facilities provided for picnicking and barbecuing after you’ve enjoyed a walk or swim in the reserve.

Getting there

From SH50, west of Waipukurau, turn into Ashley Clinton Rd. Turn to the right when you reach a fork in this road.
