Track Grade:Intermediate this walk is not yet on the DOC website but, as there was a lack of signage compared to the abundance of tracks – I would class this as an intermediate walk, with some bush and navigation experience needed. (We base our grades on Doc’s Walking Track Categories)
Highlights/Features: Evidence of historic tramway, board walks, wetland, small streams, mud, friendly fantails and curious Robins.
