Overview

Features: Birding — Views

Description

From the Matakana Valley Rd entrance, runners head straight into native bush up toward the Mt Tamahunga Track summit. This section of the trail is quite steep and can be difficult after rains as it gets very boggy and slippery.

The trail near the summit is quite steep and bouldery as well, but it quickly turns into a nice bush trail that eventually opens to farmland with views of the east coast as you head toward the beach.
