About this track


This wide, well graded track with a gentle incline leads into the Waima Ranges. It's the easiest access to Framptons Hut.

The track follows a tributary of the Whirinaki River through regenerating native vegetation. Mountain streams and small waterfalls cascade down from the ridges above into the valley below. There are some great views north across the Hokianga district. 

The track connects with the Waima Main Range Track and the Hauturu Highpoint Track.

Getting there

From Opononi head east on SH12 for 4 km then turn onto Mountain Road. Continue for a further 5 km to the end of Mountain Road.
