Title: GG's Whakapoungakau

Would never have even known about this peak until finding this site - 3rd peak out of 4 for me today. I was only just getting warmed up on this one and was at the top in 52mins from the carpark. Nice wide track with some flatish bits along the way to stretch the legs as well. If you climb the trig, you'll enjoy some great views overlooking Rotorua one direction (see photo) and right out to the coast in the other.
An even brisker walk down in 44 mins. Kind of disappointed to be back so soon - was just starting to enjoy this one   ;D
