A Frame Hut & Takapari Road Track
Image: Dean Richards | DOC
The track starts 100 m past the toilets, turns uphill and climbs steeply through podocarp then leatherwood forest to Takapari Road. Turn right at the top and follow an old bulldozed road for 100 m to reach the A Frame Hut. Due to constant vandalism, A-Frame Hut is not maintained and all facilities have been removed.
For a different return option follow the road northwards to connect with the top of the Stanfield Hut track.
Tamaki Road end is located 13 km from Dannevirke. Dannevirke is 85 km from Napier on State Highway 2. Head north from Dannevirke and turn left into Ruahine Street which leads into Umutaoroa Road after 1.2 km. Travel for another 5.4km, then turn left into Top Grass Road. Tamaki Road is located 2.3 km on your right.
The track starts at the road end.
