Te Aroha Summit tracks become much easier than in winter. It’s always one of my favourite day-tracks around Auckland. We walked a loop, started and finished at Te Aroha Domain. Te Aroha Summit track up straight forward to summit in 1:25 hrs, had a break then down to Tui Mine – Te […]
It’s been many years not walking to Kohukohunui summit via Mangatangi Ridge Track since it’s closed. Almost forgot all about it, except the beginning stream crossing. Down back via Upper Mangatawhiri Track, then Ernies Track and Lilburne Road track.

We also walked the side track Kauri Dam Walk and Nature Walk in the end. We started Te Haua Ura Track […]

We walked The Pinnacles many times. What a so hot track today! No words, just walk it and enjoy it!
