The “Total Time” is my time in June which includes morning tea and breaks. That day was cloudy, very windy and drizzle. The track was good in general but some sections were very muddy in winter! Should be more easy in summer. If you slow down to average 2.8 km/h plus 45 min stop then the total time will be around 4:15 hrs. Official record 5 hrs to Puketutu Trig return.
