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 Aroha Track. Head to Waipapa Track at the first junction until Mangakino Pack Track. Keep on Mangakino Pack Track until the junction indicates to Tui Saddle. Back to Tui Mine – Te Aroha Track and down to the last section Tui Domain Track.
