Hapuakohe Walkway North Section Hapuakohe Range Waikato

Trails: Hapuakohe Walkway north section from North Road end to Ohinewai Road end.

Note: Overgrown non-maintaining track. Experienced trampers with good navigation skill only! Need car transfer, drop and pick up.  From Lost Point (I named it, LOL…) until Ohinewai Road, track becomes very tough and dark especially in cloudy day.

Car Park: Yes at end of North Road. It’s about 86km 60 minutes drive from Auckland city center.  No car park on Ohinewai Road, on road parking only.
Public Toilet: No.
Weather: Check Weather before you go!
