About this track


The walk begins at the Taranaki/Egmont National Park Visitor Centre and follows the boardwalk up past the Camphouse and on to the Holly Hut Track. It passes the Ambury Monument then climbs numerous steps, eventually reaching the Veronica Loop Track turnoff.

Here is the option of continuing a further 10 minutes walk up the Holly Hut Track to the lookout point.

The Veronica Loop Track descends through montane forest, emerging from the trees at the Camphouse and returning to the visitor centre.
