About this track

Description

This well-graded and benched walk passes through forest that has regenerated well after being logged for its rimu and other podocarp trees in the 1930s. Another attractive feature is the many planted redwoods. A low-level tramping track follows old bush tramlines through to the Mikimiki valley, while the main tramping track ascends the Blue Range to the Blue Range Hut, approximately 2 - 3 hours away.

Getting there

The loop is off the Blue Range Track at the end of Kiriwhakapapa Road, 7 km from State Highway 2, about 16 km north of Masterton.
