Note: Whakatiwai Track is farm road and quite boring. Workman Track is quite up-and-down. ***The section from Mt Workman down to Workman Road has been closed until further notice due to Kauri Dieback disease. There is a detour in place for this section of the track. Visit www.kauridieback.co.nz for more information.
