: New Maungatautari Track

For those who haven't visited Maungatautari for a while there is a newly built wider track from Tari Road to Pukeatua peak - it's quite fun to go up the old track and down the new one - the new track is metalled and wider so you can walk and talk easily with your companions. The old track is the original track which leaves you scrambling over tree roots. The first time I walked up the old track I encountered a pair of kaka and was able to watch them sitting just above me for about 20 minutes!
