This track shows the New Zealand forest as it appeared to the early settlers: ancient, diverse, gigantic, wonderful. Walk along the Whirinaki River to the Central Whirinaki Hut, the whistling call of Whios (Blue ducks) everywhere. The next day, find your way through a less cared-for part of the trail. Trees lying all over the place and find the trail to the Mangamate Hut with a wonderful view into the Mangamate Valley. The trail leads straight through the winding river bed.
