This track commences from Te Wanahu Flat passing through both tall podocarp forest near the valley floor and subalpine vegetation on the higher slopes. After passing the junction to Deer Spur the track drops steeply to join Fern Walk which will return you via Mills Bush to Te Wanahu Flat.

31Oct18. During the walk my rating went up and down a bit. Only 6 as there is no real viewpoint anywhere.
We started with the Acland Waterfall track. Waterfall not so good when we were there.
Back down and onto the Allan’s Track. In places well made. In places very steep, muddy, rooty, slippery, wet, narrow and hard work.
We joined the Deer Spur Track and then the Fern Walk back to the campsite. Quite a longish walk all in.
I quite enjoyed most of it. If you do it, make sure you wear good boots, not worn out or too light footwear as if you do you will slip up. Look out for 4 bottom shaped indentations in the track left by my walking partner!
Very nice forest with great walks.
Any of the Peel Forest walks are well maintained and worthwhile.
Great for the fit - a wild, steep jungle of woodland - an army assault course of roots.
Thanks to all the good people working for the NZ Department of Conservation - for all your hard work - making NZ more beautiful, accessable and healthy! Cheers 😍
