As you start the walk, the Suspension Bridge over Wairoa Stream greets you, and you'll be crossing it in no time. Although there is a steep climb after the bridge, the track is well-maintained, and stairs will guide you along the way. During the walk, you'll find wooden benches, perfectly placed for taking a break and soaking up the magnificent scenery.
As you continue, the track leads to a spectacular lookout platform that offers splendid views of the Wairoa Reservoir. If you're up for more adventure, you can continue along the gravel road to reach a dam, making it an exciting loop.
The route also includes a scenic picnic area and public toilets, where you can take a break, rest, and enjoy the natural beauty around you. While dogs are allowed on the track, they must be kept under control, on leash, and away from the dam and water supply.
To preserve the park's natural beauty and prevent the spread of kauri dieback, it's important to follow the instructions to clean your shoes before and after your visit and stay on designated walking tracks.
