Mt Ngongotaha
I bagged Ngongotaha on the 5th of Sept 09 after I did Rainbow Mountain. I was pleasantly surprised with the Jubilee track, I thought it would be all farm land and pine trees as that's all you see coming in to Rotorua from state highway one. I didn't know there was a nice patch of native bush there. Did the whole track, including the new loop track which is well formed and easy walking. There's a large tree that's fallen across the track about half way up that may be a struggle to get over for some people but all together an enjoyable walk that took two hours.
