Easy track with awesome views

amazing view and exciting to cross 3 swing bridges

Great views over the Waimak valley.

steep as hell and can be slippery, awesome views though

I have run up to the top of the Rapaki track several times. Good view looking from the top

Good track to run up but narrow and had to take care running up

Do you love stairs? Great views. Lots of stairs. Picnic table at the lookout. Last 200 steps were snow covered so a good walking stick will serve you well in June.

Great views! Steep climb initially and can be a bit muddy when wet but definitely worth the effort!

Easy walk with amazing views along the way. 3 bridge crossings.

Cave stream is a water based cave walk. There are some waterfalls that can be difficult to climb if you’re alone. Stay safe and check for recent rain to ensure water levels aren’t too high/currents aren’t too strong.

It takes approximately an hour of wading through water. Usually the deepest point is ~1.3m, most of the cave is only 0.5m deep though.
