Description

This track ascends almost 1 km vertical.

Follow the track from the Mokena Geyser in the Te Aroha Domain up the well benched track to the Whakapipi Lookout which offers views over the Hauraki Plains. The Kaimai-Mamaku Forest Park begins just above the lookout. The track continues through a small saddle and then steeply up for another two hours to reach the summit. The track becomes steep, and the surface is rough.

Mount Te Aroha provides 360-degree views across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty. Ruapehu, Ngāuruhoe and Taranaki are visible on a clear day. Be prepared for alpine weather conditions at the summit. Return to Te Aroha via the same track (most direct route).
