Mt Whakapoungakau
« on: May 23, 2011, 02:51:21 PM »
Carpark located at education centre about half way along Lake Okataina (which is worth a look too).  Track starts through information pavillion and walk straight ahead, dont turn off this track until the 1st main junction and turn right (stay right always and you will be fine).  There is an amazing old tree stump just before the Whakapoungakau junction that is worth a photo. Turn right at juction to the summit that has 360deg views if you get elevated.  1Hr15Min up & 45Min down.  Part of the NZ walkway trail so is very well formed and excellent underfoot.  Moderate fitness recommended but well worth the effort.
