Description

The Tramline Track system traverses most of Great Barrier island at its widest point. 8 km one way. The Tramline Track receives minimal upkeep - for fit trampers only. From its northeastern beginning on Aotea Road, the track follows the old tramline used by the Kauri Timber Company during the 1920s and 1930s. It is sometimes very steep and was a remarkable engineering feat of its time. It descends abruptly to Awana Stream and Waterfall before climbing steeply to a plateau and then dropping to Kaitoke Stream. The track crosses several creeks, crossing Forest Road and linking with the Whangaparapara tramline extension. Shorter option From the Whangaparapara end, the track progresses over several bridges before joining Forest Road (1hour). The Pack Track is permanently closed. No dogs.
