Rapurapu Kauri Track

What you can expect

Explore the Kaimai-Mamaku Forest Park by following the Rapurapu Kauri Track as it winds around mature podocarp forest and visits three massive kauri trees. Located past the Kaimai Summit towards the Waikato side, Rapurapu Kauri Track is an advanced tramping track stretching 5 kilometres return. Reserved for experienced trampers, the trail takes around 1 hour and 15 minutes to complete one way before returning back on the same trail. The trail crosses through multiple rivers that are relatively easy to traverse with good weather, however if there has been heavy rain in the area the rivers may become impassable and a hazard.
