Long: Start at the Ohinewai Road end of the track which follows the Hapuakohe Ridge in a northerly direction with some significant ups and downs on the way. Some delightful stretches of native bush (kohekohe/puriri), a few hidden streams, and two lookouts with spectacular views across the Hauraki Plains and the farmland on the western side. Finish at the DOC sign on North Rd.
Note: A good six hours of tramping with no opportunity to stop short of the full distance. Not for beginners, good fitness required.
Leader: Russell Allen, Ph 276 8770 mob 021 0480380
Medium: An easier trip would be to stay with the driver, and explore the southern section of the track with its native bush and hidden streams, or alternatively go up the southern Hapuakohe section as far as the Maungakawa viewpoint (535m).
