About this track


Woodside Glen: 2 hr 30 min, 4 km (return)
Maungatua summit: a further 6 hr, 15 km (return) from Woodside Glen

Start at the Woodside Glen car park and picnic area, 2 km west of Outram along Woodside Rd. The walking track follows Lee Creek, then crosses it and climbs steeply. A rock outcrop just above the bush line is a natural stopping point before returning the way you came.

For a longer and more challenging walk, follow the tramping track to the Maungatua summit (exposed in bad weather).
