im only beginner at hiking and I found this a nice challenge to get to the top. beautiful track, was a bit slippery/muddy in some parts.

Great hike for South Auckland - gets the heart racing

mcmillian road is the easier if the two routes to the top. if you want a steeper walk there is a carpark off of irish road, statehighway 2 for those that dont know the area. this walk takes you through some bush area and can be a little muddy.

The North Road end of the of the track is in good condition and relatively easy to follow. The Ohinewai Rd end of the track has become seriously overgrown with numerous tree falls, and obscured track markers. That end of the track doesn't appear to be maintained and looked little used. We frequently lost the the track and had to use GPS Topomap apps to refind it. The recommended time for the track is 8 hours but we are a fairly fit bunch and normally do it in 6 hours. This time it took us over 8 hours. We've advised DOC Waikato of what we found, and don't intend to do this route again until we get confirmation that it is safer to use.
