“Ascend one of the Waikato's highest peaks with some of the greatest vertical gradient around.”— Kerry Suter
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).
