Bald Knob - Lake Waikaremoana 

02 June 12

What a beautiful day we had! We took a lot of time just exploring, taking pictures and enjoying the views. Great views all along the track. I was a little worried that we wouldn’t be able to find the herd path to the summit from what I had read. But it turned out to be quite easy. Read the description from the trail guide and when the track opens up and looks like this:


Turn to the right and you will see the very obvious herd path:


Then walk just a few meters out to the summit to enjoy a great lunch stop.



Looked like we were the first people out there for a while, no signs of footprints at all. We heard others walking by but had the summit all to ourselves. We spent quite a bit of time having lunch and taking lots of pictures. LOVED IT!
