Taupiri Fire Lookout - Whirinaki
« on: January 02, 2011, 03:21:47 PM »
Despite getting prior instructions from DoC to find the track, we got rather lost finding the road at the start of the walk, and then realised there must have once been a sign on the top of a post at one of the intersections. We then walked up the road and all 11 of us missed the sign for the walking track to the Fire Lookout, only seeing it on the return journey - some serious overgrowth there!
However, it was all worth it as the view from the top was spectacular!! We could see Tauhara, Ruapehu, Edgecumbe, Pirongia etc. It was also great getting up into the Fire Lookout.
Definately one to revisit on future visits to Whirinaki.
