The Te Tapui Loop Track boasts stunning views across to the Kaimai Ranges and Firth of Thames from the summit lookout tower.

The 3-4 hour Waikato walk is a loop track that can be done in either direction. The tracks leads a short way into the peaceful bush surrounds before splitting in two directions. The track on the right is a shorter route to the summit, but includes a steady climb, while the left track is gentler, but a longer walk.

Visitors are rewarding with great views from the summit, the perfect spot for a picnic before the descent back down.
