The full track is currently closed to prevent the spread of kauri dieback (7 July 2018).
Can be muddy when wet.

Beautiful track! Quite tricky for the unfit due to steepness of the climb. However, truly worth it. The view is magnificent and breathtaking. We witnessed the 360 rotation view of whatipu. At the top you will see a bench where you can absorb the beauty and peace of nature has gifted us. Worth the climb, also tricky to go down since some rocks slides down with you. Otherwise, really worth it.
