Kauaeranga Kauri Trail - Pinnacles Walk

North Island NZ
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

Moderate 2.5-3 hour climb (one way) through the stunning Kauaeranga Valley to the Pinnacles Hut.
The summit is a further 45 minutes from here. You can do an over night stay at the hut and complete the summit at sunrise (recommended).
Follow the gravelled path and staircase. From here you will have to do some scrambling and negotiate a few metal ladders along with metal rungs to get to the top and take in the stunning views.

Once you've soaked it all in, return to the hut, pick up your pack and head back down. You can return via the
Webb Creek Track or Billygoay track with the former being the shorter route.

The tracks are well marked and impossible to lose.
