Mangapurua Track (and Te Araroa Trail), Ruapehu Di, North Island.


Walk/cycle in camping in the Whanganui National Park on the Mangapurua Track. No vehicle access. Mangapurua Trig to Johnsons Time: 2 hr walking, 1 hr cycling Distance: 6.8 km From the Trig the track heads steadily downhill, passing the only uncut section of forest in the Mangapurua Valley. The first swing bridge in the valley crosses Slippery Creek and a further 1.5 km along you reach Johnsons. The large flat at Johnsons makes a good camping spot. The campsite has a shelter, water supply and toilet. The original farmer Edward Johnson collected the mail twice a week from the Mangapurua Landing and distributed it through the valley.
