The “Total Time” is my time in November which includes tea time and lunch time and breaks. That day was cloudy then rain. Wairoa Cossey Track was very muddy and slippery in that day. If you slow down to average 3.0 km/h plus 60 min stop then the total time will be around 8:00 hrs.For more detailed information, please go to my old post .
