19/09/2020 Long time no see you – Kohukohunui Summit!
From Upper Mangatawhiri Dam Campsite to Piggotts Hut by Lilburne Road, then flow into Ernies Track. Turn right into Upper Mangatawhiri Track after about 1.4KM walk on Ernies Track. More easier down hill from Kohukohunui Track until Mine Road. Then Mine Road Track will be the most challenge section as it goes down speedily, crosses streams and rise up 300 metres in less than 1km! After we escaped from the valley, our water bottles were all nearly empty! Then after, we walked hard until back on the 4WD road and finished our day by a 5km downhill happy run!
