Umukarikari is the highest point of the Umukarikari Range, which is located in the Kaimanawa Forest Park. By continuing on and overnighting at Waipakihi Hut, Unmukarikari can be bagged on a two day loop which also takes in the summit of Urchin. Like Urchin however, Umukarikari can be bagged on a return day tramp.
For more information on the full loop tramp, see North Island Weekend Tramps, Shaun Barnett, Craig Potton Publishing (2002) pages 77-79.
