Heaphy Track is a 45 mile lightly trafficked point-to-point trail located near the city of Bainham that features a great forest setting. The trail is rated as moderate offers a number of activity options.
The Heaphy Track is a remote 82km hike in the north-west of South Island. It is the longest Great Walk and most diverse. What makes it so interesting is the variety of scenery you are about to see on your 3 to 6 day hike: bush, mountains, streams and waterfalls, caves, tussock plains, ocean and beaches with palm trees and wonderfully blue water. The four to five day trail follows a historic, scenic highway from the inland forests across a high rolling plateau. Best time is mid-February through March.
