Runner Notes

This trail is muddy and technical year-round. Appropriate footwear is advised. Tree fall is commonplace and basic route-finding skills may be required to locate the trail following such hazards.

Description

The Tahuanui Track leaves the campsite beside the stream and climbs steadily up a ridge to join the Tirohanga Track before the summit.

This track is part of Te Araroa - New Zealand's trail from Cape Reinga to Bluff.
