Runner Notes

The track starts with stairs but becomes technical and steep in the later stages

Description

The track starts from Corcoran Road, climbs to Ruapane then traverses an undulating ridge on uneven ground before passing Tirohanga Bluff, a pinnacle of hard lava signifying its volcanic origins. The track then descends and climbs before reaching the Pirongia summit. On a clear day look for Mt. Taranaki and Mt. Ruapehu in the distance.
