The name Pukewīwī means 'hill covered in rushes', while Puketāpapa means 'flat-topped hill'. This maunga was formed by an eruption around 20,000 years ago, and the scoria cone was built by fire-fountaining from two craters. Although the two shallow craters are no longer visible, the tihi (summit) still stands tall at 110 meters.
In 2018, the upper section of the tihi was reinstated to grass, and it's now a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.
Just keep in mind that it's permanently closed to private motor vehicles, including motorbikes and scooters.
