Detailed information

Experience natural New Zealand bush are you head towards the H tree, a special Rimu tree which formed into a H when the tree’s branch grew into the trunk of a younger tree. The forest is home to a large population of native birds including many rare species.  Whios (blue duck), North Island kakas, red and yellow crowned kakarikis, kiwis, robins and kererus can all be found here. The best time to see and hear the birds is in the early morning or late afternoon. Throughout the track are information panels about the surrounding area providing interesting facts and photos. There is even a treasure map (available in English and Maori) for children to explore the forest with.

The loop is 2.2km and takes approximately 1 hour.


The trail is made of hard packed dirt and gravel and is a suitable grade and width for a wheelchair.
