Walk past an old pa site (hidden by vegetation) through regenerating native bush to a large kauri tree, estimated to be over a thousand years old. Kauri grove Time: 40 min one wayA few minutes further on, and past the site of a large kauri that fell in 2009, the track passes through a grove of young kauri (rickers) to a viewpoint that looks out across the forest. Return the way you came or continue on to complete the full loop. Full loop Time: 2 hr From the viewpoint, climb up through stands of large rimu to an excellent view point of Huntly and the north Waikato lakes. From here you can continue on the Hakarimata Walkway to the Southern Lookout (20 min, 700 m) with views that extend across Hamilton and south to Tongariro National Park on a clear day.
