2958 Wharekirauponga

Sunday 29th August 2021

This track is approximately 20 km long. Named after the Te Wharekirauponga Stream on the eastern side of the Kaimai range and shortened to the Te Whareki Pack Track. Broadly speaking we go from the Karangahake gorge area to Whangamata. Today the entrance to the Te Whareki Pack Track at the Golden Cross end is by walking from the carpark up and along the south side of the mine lake to its end and then dropping down to the right through two gateways, turning left on the old pack track, climbing slowly up through the pine trees into heavy bush and a sharp left turn onto the original track. Views of Mt. Pirongia can be seen as one starts to leave the pine trees behind. Approximately 2.5 hours from the Golden Cross carpark (Lookout to Whangamata) there are, on the left of the track on a ridge, some good views of Whangamata and down towards the Quarry Road carpark.
