IntroductionThis loop walk passes through regenerated native forest - it's well-graded and suitable for children.
This well-graded walk passes through forest that has regenerated well after being logged for its rimu and other podocarp trees in the 1930s. Another attractive feature is the many planted redwoods.
It connects with a low-level tramping track that follows old bush tramlines through to the Mikimiki valley, and with a tramping track that ascends the Blue Range to the Blue Range Hut, approximately 2–3 hours away.
The loop is off the Blue Range Track at the end of Kiriwhakapapa Road, 7 km from State Highway 2, about 16 km north of Masterton.
