Boar Inn lies on the east side of the Orongorongo River - wet feet are part of the adventure. Check river levels before crossing.
You need to bring:
Boar Inn is a 2 hour 30 minute walk via the Orongorongo Track.

From the picnic area and toilet near the bridge, cross to the true left of the river and walk downstream passing Raukawa Hut on the way.

If this hut isn't available at the time of booking, consider Coast Road Cabin at the entrance to the Catchpool Valley.
Check the flow of the Orongorongo River before you go. Don't cross the river when it's in flood or there has been sustained rainfall in the area.
